'I'll Have What He's Having' - By Tim Layzell
Lot No.: 272
Sold for (£): 460
As the new boy at Ferrari in 1956, Peter Collins was teamed with the Italian hot shoe, Eugenio Castellotti and established maestro Juan Manuel Fangio. Collins quickly established himself as a favourite of Enzo Ferrari while Fangio endured an unhappy single season with the Scuderia. At Monaco, in spite of starting from pole position and setting fastest lap, Fangio in car 20 had an uncharacteristically untidy race, hitting straw bales and damaging his car early in the race before hitting a wall and bending a wheel on lap 32. When Collins pitted at half distance, he handed his car over to his teammate who chased the victorious Stirling Moss in vain, the Ferrari pair sharing second place in car 26 while Fangio also took a share of 4th place after his car was taken over by Castellotti. Simple, isn't it? Limited Edition, one of just 150 hand signed and numbered by the artist Tim Layzell and Giclee Printed on very high-quality 308 gsm art paper. Custom mounted in a high-quality brushed aluminium frame complete with COA.
