Anxiety? Fear?

Before the "Go", I feel...

a mix of feelings,

all of which disappear

as soon as the race starts.

The hero of the event

was the brilliant young British driver,

Mike Hawthorn, number four.

Peter Collins in the Ferrari

took and held the lead

from the beginning.

Enzo Ferrari was a great talent scout

and after the war, although there were

many good young Italian drivers,

he'd spotted that there was

a bunch of English drivers

who were starting

to do very well indeed.

Hawthorn and Collins

had some years between them.

Mike was the older

by two or three years.

He really made his name in the little

Riley that was prepared by his father.

Every time they went to a race meeting,

here was a young man who expected

to come away with a trophy.

Peter, when he started racing

with a 500cc Cooper

that his father, Pat, bought for him,

he was immediately quick

and he was only 17 years old.

Hawthorn and Collins

met as rivals on the race track,

but eventually when they both

found themselves in Modena

driving for Ferrari,

they became enormous friends.

Mike was a sports-jacketed

beer-drinking one of the lads.

He and Peter Collins were like a pair

of rather irresponsible schoolboys.

Tremendously fun-loving.

Peter was a life enhancer.

When he came into the room,

things got jollier, noisier

and altogether more entertaining.

When I first met Mike

he was tall, good-looking.

I thought, "That's a lovely-looking

man." So I set my heart on him.

He was a great character, a very flash

sort of a guy, who was a lot of fun.

I think he used motor racing as

a stepping stone to enjoyment of life,

whereas to me it was the life.

You were either a Hawthorn fan or

a Moss fan. You couldn't really be both.

Peter, in particular, I think,
