Mike Hawthorn became the first ever British Formula One champion in 1958 despite only winning one Grand Prix that season, and immediately announced his retirement from Formula One having been profoundly affected by the death of his friend and team mate Peter Collins. He began his Formula One career in 1952 and raced for Ferrari, Vanwall, BRM and non-works Cooper and Maserati teams before his retirement. He was killed in a car accident in 1959 aged just 29.
