Jim Clark vs The Rest
Sean Kelly – @virtualstatman – produced an amazing suite of graphics for Ep 62 of The Flying Lap yesterday. (To see a re-run of the show, click the TFL icon in the column on the right here or go to http://smibs.tv/live.) One of my favourites was this – his vision of what would have happened if Ayrton Senna and Jim Clark had not been cut down in their primes but instead had continued to win at the rate that had characterised their careers from the outset. Ayrton’s blue, Michael Schumacher is red (and currently at 2012, of course); and Jim Clark is lime green. Oh, and by the way: that’s Jim in the header picture above (at Monaco, 1966, in the Lotus 33B-Climax).
