Peter Warr - a message from Mr Ecclestone 05 Oct 2010

Peter Warr (GBR) Lotus Team Manager 1984 Third placed Ronnie Peterson (SWE) sits in his Lotus 72E as Colin Chapman (GBR) Lotus Team Owner (Left) and Peter Warr (GBR) Lotus Team Manager (Right) talk. Canadian Grand Prix, Rd 14, Mosport Park, 22 September 1974. (L to R): Peter Warr (GBR) Lotus Team Manager; Bernie Ecclestone (GBR) Brabham Team Owner and Ken Tyrrell (GBR) Tyrrell Team Owner at a meeting with Goodyear on race day morning when the tyre company elected to recall the existing batch of tyres and provide a new batch for the race. Italian Grand Prix, Rd13, Monza, Italy, 8 September 1974.

Not only have I lost a good friend who was the Team Manager for Lotus when Colin Chapman ran the company but Peter Warr, who died yesterday of a heart attack will be missed by the thousands of people that knew him.

When Peter was in Formula One he helped me to build it to what it is today.

Thank you Peter.
