John Maxwell Lineham Love (December 7, 1924 - April 25, 2005) was a racing driver from Rhodesia. He participated in 10 Formula One World Championship Grands Prix, debuting on December 29, 1962. He achieved 1 podium, and scored a total of 6 championship points.

Love was born in Bulawayo. Six times South African F1 Champion in the 1960s, he had originally shone in the European Formula Junior firmament back in 1961-62 at the wheel of a Cooper-Austin from Ken Tyrrell's team. An unfortunate accident at Albi resulted in a very badly broken arm and effectively thwarted his chances of moving into full-time F1, but he came close when he was nominated as Phil Hill's replacement in the works Cooper team for the 1964 Italian Grand Prix at Monza. Nevertheless, he became a regular contestant in the South African Grand Prix and was leading the 1967 event at Kyalami in his 2.7 L Climax-engined Cooper when a misfire prompted him to make a precautionary stop for extra fuel and he dropped back to finish second behind the works Cooper-Maserati of Pedro Rodríguez.

Love owned the Jaguar dealership in Bulawayo and had his own stock car racing team in the 1980s.
