Peter Collins is perhaps a somewhat overlooked British racing driver from an era that created many heroes. Tragically, Collins was one of the shortest lived, which perhaps explains why he is less well-remembered than Sir Stirling Moss or John Surtees. However, Collins was as talented as any of his peers, winning both Grands Prix and sports car races for Ferrari and famously nobly handing his car to team-mate Fangio, denying himself the World Championship.
