Its great and been a jenson fan 4 ages. Do u think they need to get new alternative commentators? They always goin on about tyres and brake balance. Sadly ive never driven a f1 car and dont have a clue wot they on a about. I know tyres wear out but dont get all the tech stuff. Bring back murray walker or a new murray style person

Apart from a few slight blunders, Murray Walker knew his techie stuff as well, one of the things that made him good was the mix of styles, something for everyone especially with his overwhelming enthusiasm. On the few occasions I watch F1 now, I usually have the volume turned down.

Bring back Murray


A battle is developing between them' I say developing, because it's not yet on.
Murray Walker

And now, excuse me while I interrupt myself.
Murray Walker

And that just shows you how important the car is in Formula One Racing.
Murray Walker

Anything happens in Grand Prix racing, and it usually does.
Murray Walker

Eight minutes past the hour here in Belgium - and presumably eight minutes past the hour everywhere in the world.
Murray Walker

Either the car is stationary, or it's on the move.
Murray Walker

Even in five years time, he will still be four years younger than Damon Hill.
Murray Walker

He can't decide whether to leave his visor half open or half closed.
Murray Walker

I can't believe what's happening visually, in front of my eyes.
Murray Walker

I don't make mistakes. I make prophecies which immediately turn out to be wrong.
Murray Walker

I should imagine that the conditions in the cockpit are totally unimaginable.
Murray Walker

I'm in my usual state up here in the commentary box: high tension, heart beating like a trip hammer, whatever that is.
Murray Walker

I've no idea what Eddie Irvine's orders are, but he's following them superlatively well.
Murray Walker

IF is a very long word in Formula One; in fact, IF is F1 spelled backwards.
Murray Walker

Now he must not go the wrong way round the circuit, and unless he can spin himself stationary through 360 degrees I fail to see how he can avoid doing so.
Murray Walker

Schumacher wouldn't have let him past voluntarily. Of course he did it voluntarily, but he had to do it.
Murray Walker

That's History. I say History because it happened in the past.
Murray Walker

The lead car is unique, except for the one behind it which is identical.
Murray Walker

There are seven winners of the Monaco Grand Prix on the starting line today, and four of them are Michael Schumacher.
Murray Walker

There's nothing wrong with the car except that it's on fire.
Murray Walker

Classics, I will have to start using "I don't make mistakes. I make prophecies which immediately turn out to be wrong" to cover my multitude of gaffs.

Didnt he say about Monaco once that it was raining everywhere on the circuit, except in the tunnel?

Personally I love F1, Murray Walker is a legend but the new batch are good too. I have never driven a racing car but understand the main points of brake balance etc, turning the engine down as I have watched it for years and years and am only 35 and sort of grew up whilst most of these things have ben introduced.

You can find out about the tech stuff on various websites and it will improve the way you watch F1 as it is no longer about just being a very good driver and it does not take to long to understand the basics behing some of the tech stuff.

As for Murray's quotes I miss them, one of my favourite lines although it was not fuuny was when Damon Hill came round the last corner to win the Championship and Murray said "I have to stop now as I have a lump in my throat".
