Neville Lederle (born 25 September 1938 in Theunissen, Orange Free State) is a former racing driver from South Africa. He participated in two World Championship Formula One Grands Prix, scoring a single championship point.

Starting out in Formula One with his Ford-engined Lotus 18 in 1961, he retired from the Rand Grand Prix and only managed 14th in the Cape Grand Prix in January 1962. Later that year, however, he acquired a Lotus 21 with a Climax engine and came fifth in the 1962 Rand Grand Prix and fourth in the Natal Grand Prix. This form led him to a sixth place in the World Championship South African Grand Prix and thus a World Championship point in his first event at that level.

In 1963 Lederle broke a leg in practice for the Rand 9 Hours sports car race and missed a large part of the 1964 season whilst recovering. He returned with his Lotus 21 for the end-of-season 1964 Rand Grand Prix where he finished 10th, but he narrowly failed to qualify for January's 1965 South African Grand Prix.[1] After this disappointment, Lederle effectively retired from racing to concentrate on business interests, which included a Volkswagen dealership.
