John Connor

John Connor, who for many years represented Marlboro at race tracks around the world, has died. Connor worked with many of the great drivers in the 1980s and 1990s, looking after their contracts and race weekend commitments and at the same time made sure that all ran smoothly with Marlboro's extensive trackside signage.

He left Marlboro at the end of 1997 but the family connection still continues with F1 as his son Gregory is a Geneva-based lawyer dealing with the contracts for some of the F1 stars.
