In Formula One, the Leslie Johnson Trophy is awarded to the driver who becomes the first non-finish of the season. It has always been awarded in the opening race, since drivers crash out or suffer mechanical failures all the time. It is named after Leslie Johnson, the first ever driver to retire from a Formula One race. Out of all the fictional F1 trophies it is the most disliked and drivers have tried to avoid it.

In 1956, Juan Manuel Fangio became the first person to win the Drivers' Championship and the Leslie Johnson Trophy in the same year. 1981 was the first time that the trophy was awarded to two drivers (Alain Prost and Andrea de Cesaris) since they were involved in a collision at the start of the season opening round at Long Beach and both retired on the spot.
