about Leslie Marr

Sir Leslie Lynn Marr, 2nd Baronet (born 14 August 1922) is a British artist and former racing driver.

Marr was born in Durham, England, the son of John Lynn Marr (1877-1931) and Amelia Rachel, nee Thompson (1884-1971). He was educated at Shrewsbury School and Pembroke College, Cambridge. He inherited his baronetcy in 1932 on the death of his grandfather, shipbuilder Sir James Marr, 1st Baronet, though he does not use the title. During World War II, he served with the Royal Air Force.

Marr participated in two Formula One World Championship Grands Prix, making his debut on 17 July 1954 at the British Grand Prix. Racing in his private Connaught, he finished in 13th place, but retired from his last world championship race in 1955, after a damaged brake pipe caused him to spin off. Marr competed in several non-Championship races, with his best results including winning the 1955 Cornwall MRC Formula 1 Race and finishing fourth in the New Zealand Grand Prix the following year.

Marr is also an artist, having studied at the Borough Polytechnic (later London South Bank University) under David Bomberg and as a member of the Borough Group.

But even before Red Bull’s current wave of success increased coverage of their team radio exchanges, Lambiase had forged a reputation for keeping Verstappen in check with a no-nonsense demeanour his driver responded to positively – even teasing ...
