Great article!

It also reveals to me that Colin Chapman had a much greater depth of understanding and empathy than I had credited him with and an equal ability to express them in the written word.

Very well written. Reveals a perspective from Chapman I hadn't seen before despite reading numerous books, biographies and other accounts of his life at team Lotus. :)
