Mercedes completely withdrew from motor sport racing after their car killed 80 spectators at 1955 Le Mans race. Fangio joined Ferrari, who aquired D50 cars from Lancia team, who also withdrew from sport. Fangio won 3 races, but faced quite a challenge from Stirling Moss (now Maserati) and Peter Collins (Ferrari), who won 2 races each. After Fangio retired at the final race of the championship, Collins had a great chance of winning his first title himself. But Collins chose to hand his car over to Fangio instead, which allowed Fangio to won his 4th title. This gesture still remains one of best acts of sportmanship in F1 history.
