Jim Clark was so good that in both of his championship-winning seasons (1963, 1965) he achieved the maximum possible score under the rules of the time. And in 1965 he did that AND skipped Monaco to win the Indianapolis 500! Simply the best.

Yes, indeed, make no mistake… he certainly was that good and more and deserves his status as a legend. An inspiration to everyone, including everyone he raced with.
A hero for me, that is for sure.
