He competed with success in all kind of races and categories (Hill Climb, Formula Junior, Formula 2, Tasman Series, Formula 1, Rally, Sport and touring cars, Indianapolis and even Nascar). He participated in the 24hrs of Le Mans three times in 1959 with Lotus, in 1960 and 1961 with Aston Martin.
Within 10 years and with Lotus he built one of the greatest careers in motor racing. He won his first F1 World Champion title in 1963.
He was highly admired by his competitors, including Jackie Stewart, Graham Hill, and John Surtees and always beat them fair and square. His driving style was a mix of smoothness and finesse and quick at the same time.
