The Lotus 25 of Jimmy Clark illustrates just how tiny the earlier GP cars were. As a scale I am about 5'7" tall (short).

As with all good racing drivers, he's paying attention to the curves...............
After seeing some of his original interviews at the time on TV (such as the one from his usa hospital bed during one of the Sports Personality of The Year broadcasts), I'm pretty sure if he was able to answer the question today:

"Graham, just what was it that you were looking at when this photo was taken?",

He would give one of those mischievous grins and with a glint in his eye reply,

"Well dear chap, we were asked to wear sponsor badges and I was just checking it was straight or course"
followed by a wink and a cheeky grin.

Ahhh Graham Hill. Such a character, personality in the true sense of the word, sportsman in the true sense of the word and great driver. So sad he was lost so early.
