The seventh of a total of eight races for the 1956 Automobile World Championship, the German Grand Prix, took place on August 5th at the Nürburgring. Shortly before the end of the season, Peter Collins was one point ahead of Juan Manuel Fangio, both under contract with Enzo Ferrari, in the drivers' championship. Collins was four points ahead of Jean Behra, who started for Maserati. All three had a good chance of winning the title of driver world champion. Stirling Moss was already too far behind so that he could no longer win the title on his own.

The young Briton Peter Collins competed with a “long-nosed” Ferrari, as did his world champion stable mate Juan Manuel Fangio. The long nose gave the racing car a striking appearance, but also improved aerodynamics. A green stripe on the tip of the nose helped the pit crew to better distinguish Collins' car from Fangio's car during the race.

In practice, Fangio and Collins were only 0.3 seconds apart, Fangio won the duel for pole position. Castellotti took third place on the grid, three seconds behind. Another ten seconds behind, Maserati driver Stirling Moss qualified fourth.

The race ran over 22 laps, but Collins managed to take the lead on the straight. Fangio regained his top position on the first lap. The world championship pilot stayed in first place until the end of the race. Collins made a driving error during the race and had to retire. Only seven of the 19 racing drivers who started crossed the finish line, five made it into the ranking. Fangio won confidently from Stirling Moss, who crossed the finish line a few seconds ahead of Maserati driver Behra. In the drivers' championship, Collins lost the lead, but had justified hope of winning the title in the last Grand Prix of the season.
