F1 mourns former Lotus chief Warr

Breaking News

Formula 1 is in mourning after the death of former Lotus team boss Peter Warr, who died on Monday aged 72.

Warr was team manager under founder Colin Chapman and ran the team for seven years, working with Nigel Mansell and Ayrton Senna in their early days.

"When Peter was in F1 he helped me to build it to what it is today," said F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone.

After a long career Warr retired to live in France but was a guest at this year's Bahrain Grand Prix.

That race saw the Lotus name return to F1, under the stewardship of Malaysian entrepreneur Tony Fernandes.

"Peter was a great supporter of our racing aspirations and it was fantastic to meet someone with such knowledge, spirit and passion for Lotus and for our sport," said Fernandes.
