“Murray Walker - The Pits.”

published 13/08/2000

ProGood humoured, enthusiastic.

ConsExcitable, repetitive, incompetant, has become a c...

Why are we English so protective of our crumbling monuments? Houses, statues, vehicles, memoirs of a bygone age, as they rust and erode are lovingly restored. It will, however need more than a coat of paint and some Polyfiller to keep Murray Walker on track much longer. Murray, we are told, is an...

“The best”

published 19/09/2000

ProThe man

Consnone

The change over from BBC to ITV has been a little painful with the introduction of advertising to the sport. Its so annoying that when something important and exciting is about to happen we have to go to a break. Thank goodness for Murray Walker then the saviour of Formula 1. This man is so good...

“Murray Walker is GREAT”

published 23/08/2000

ProGreat voice, livens up the races

ConsWell, a tiny bit senile but who cares?

Yes, Murray Walker is old. Yes, Murray Walker is senile AND yes Murray Walker mixes up cars but he is still undeniably the best sports commentator despite all these faults. His voice is that of a Ferrari V12 engine and the enthusiasm he puts into his job his fantastic. Martin Brundle is there to...

ConsNone

Well what can be said about this man, the greatest of his time, in my humble opinion. Quite simply I owe a great debt to this guy, his commentry oozes a passion which no other can compare to, and my love of F1 was inspired by his great style. He makes mistakes more often than he should, but that...

“Murray Walker is a has been”

Proreplacement could only be better

Consnone

I really enjoy formula one racing but that enjoyment is being spoiled by Murray Walker. He used to be very good at his job but he is now a joke constantly being corrected. He is forever mixing up cars drivers and screaming down the mike false information. Time to call it a day Murray before you...

“Murray Walker”

published 29/07/2000

Prohe's soooo enthusiastic

Conshe makes too many mistakes

Don't you think that Murray Walker is just the best sports commentator EVER. I mean he's just soo enthusiastic about Formula 1. When he unfortunately missed the French Grand Prix at Magnycours it just wasn't the same. It seemed so boring and drab and it was infact the only Grand Prix for an...

“Long Live Murray!”

published 15/08/2000

Long live Murray! Murray Walker has been our frontman on motorsports for over 50 years. I think he should go on as long as he is physically able to. I sometimes hate his mistakes but there's nothing like Murray getting excited to liven things up during a Formula 1 Grand Prix race. When the time...

“Good coverage”

published 09/01/2001

Progood coverage

Consnone

After the BBC had lost the right to yet another major sporting event, I thought here we go, no more Murray Walker, no more good coverage, but when credit has to be given I’m not that kind of person to shy a way. I must admit that the coverage was first class, it didn’t even other me...

“The Best Thing in F1”

published 10/08/2000

Murray Walker has to be quite simply the best thing about Formula One. In general, Formula One races are very interesting, but there are often moments when the cars are just following one another and there isn’t much going on. It is at times like this that you realise how wonderful Murray is, as...

“Eddie Herbert???”

published 14/10/2000

Profunny, knowledge of the sport

Conshe'll have to retire one day

Formula 1 without Murray Walker just wouldn't be the same, I have never yet heard a sports commentator who has such passion. His ability to remember statistics from 50 years ago is unbelievable especially when he gets the modern drivers names muddled up. But his "murrayisms" are what makes...

“Time to retire”

published 13/08/2000

Isn't it about time Murray Walker retired. OK in his earlier years he wasn't bad at his chosen career, but now ... he's past it. It's a chore watching the F1 now having to listen to his inscecent drivelling. Most of the time Martin Brundell has to put him right on who's in which car and is always...

ProCommittment, enthusiasm

ConsCan't think of any

Murray Walker has commentated on almost every single Grand Prix race over the last 50 years. His commentating is excellent, and he will be a hard act to follow. He is respected by drivers, and everyone in Formula One. Why then has he not received a knighthood for services to sport. He may not...
