Warr loathed him and was reputed to have said “he will never win a Grand Prix as long as I have a hole in my arse”.
The remark came after NM requested a different spec. brake be fitted to his car. Warr refused and NM parked the car with no brakes halfway through the race IIRC

NM went on to become world Champion and Warr managed to kill off the best F1 team ever IMHO. NM might be a 100% awkward SOB but he did have bursts of brilliance. Remember him trying to push his car over the finish line at Dallas in 1984 to finish sixth?
