The extraordinary driving talent of the young British Peter Collins (born 6 November 1931) did not remain hidden from Enzo Ferrari. Therefore, Peter Collins was committed from 1956 by the Scuderia. The “Youngster” took off from the first race on – his chances for the title of driver-world champion were very good.
At the last GP venue of the 1956 season in Monza Collins wrote racing history: his selfless decision and generous homage to his world champion team rivals decided on the outcome of the championship. Collins is the only Formula 1 driver in history who voluntarily renounced the gripping possible world title in favor of the teammate. He justified this decision by saying that he was still young enough and in the following years still has many chances to become world champion. Unfortunately Collins died two years later in an accident on the Nürburgring for the Grand Prix of Germany in 1958.
Included in this set are three Ferrari D50 cars:
#14: 1956 French Grand Prix, Collins won the race.
#2: 1956 German Grand Prix, dark green stripe, Collins DNF.
#26: 1956 Italian Grand Prix, Collins gave his car to Fangio after his experienced damage. Fangio finished second and won his fourth Championship.
