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 become more of a laughing stock than you already areIn handing over the reins to a younger and more capable man you will leave still with some cred and certainly made my enjoyment of Formula one more tolerable

Murray Walker Murray Walker: Unless I'm Very Much Mistaken

Murray Walker Murray Walker: Unless I'm Very Much Mistaken

The drivers and teams changed, but for as long as most people can remember, Murray ... more

Walker--fast, furious and very flappable--was the
voice of Formula One. In Unless I'm Very Much
Mistaken, the much-loved commentator reflects on a
unique career with all the style and enthusiasm
that he brought to his broadcasts Whether he's
talking about his first experiences of motor sport
as a competitor, his time in the army, his career
in advertising, his transition from media
part-timer to media legend or his retirement from
frontline F1 broadcasts at the end of the 2001
season, Walker has a fascinating story to
tell--and he retains his journalist's sense of
what the people really want to know. He shares his
face-to-face knowledge of motor sport gods like
Fangio and Enzo Ferrari and recalls his less
daunting encounters with British luminaries such
as Nigel Mansell, the Hills, Jackie Stewart and
James Hunt, including the occasion when the latter
pair sniped at each other in a memorable
commentary box match-up. There's also a good
selection of the best Murrayisms, such as "And the
battle is well and truly on if it wasn't before,
and it certainly was!", "There's nothing wrong
with the car except it's on fire!" and "I just
stopped my startwatch". Tremendous admiration for
the skills and courage of the stars of his sport
epitomises the Walker approach. This is no doubt
fuelled by his own slightly fraught attempt at
piloting a Formula One car in 1983 and by his
experience at less pedestrian speed 15 years later
when he was strapped into a two-seater McLaren
behind co-commentator Martin Brundle. But he also
gently settles one or two scores along the way.
Elsewhere he reflects on the itinerary of
affection so peculiar to the life of a British
celebrity--This Is Your Life, Desert Island Discs
and an OBE--and on his private life, his hugely
influential parents, his late and happy marriage
and what he hopes retirement will bring. It's a
tribute to the man's singular voice that so much
of the tone of this boo
