Murray Walker - The Pits.

AdvantagesGood humoured, enthusiastic.

DisadvantagesExcitable, repetitive, incompetant, has become a caricature.

"...and some Polyfiller to keep Murray Walker on track much longer. Murray, we are told, is an institution. To my mind he should be confined in one. Every second Sunday of the Grand Prix season this sad, bumbling man ruins my enjoyment of a heroic sporting contest. As he wrongly identifies the team, the driver and occasionally the venue, he enthrals me with his repetitions, clichés, apologies and opinions of what the drivers are thinking. I know that ..."

The best

AdvantagesThe man

Disadvantagesnone

"...a break. Thank goodness for Murray Walker then the saviour of Formula 1. This man is so good at his job, ok he gets things wrong more often than not, but his passion and commitment to the sport is unrivalled by anyone. I think his critics should stand up and be ashamed at their treatment of this man. Formula One need him more than he needs Formula 1. So 3 cheers for Murray!!! ..." Read review

Why has he not been Knighted yet?

AdvantagesCommittment, enthusiasm

DisadvantagesCan'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 have won a race, or been part of a F1 team, but he has done a great service to the public, and it is partly down to him, why Formula One is so great. People ..." Read review

Time to retire

Advantages

Disadvantages

"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 correcting his mistakes. He's too old to keep up with the new cars and technology. At the start ot each race he starts the drivers of with his boring "Go ..." Read review

Murray Walker is GREAT

AdvantagesGreat voice, livens up the races

DisadvantagesWell, 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 keep him in check and most of the time he does a great job and livens up the races immensely. He can also relate to hundred of other races which no other ..." Read review
