Murray Walker interview video


Recommended Posts

Fascinating  +++




Murray Walker is also known as the "Voice of Formula 1" and for many racing fans worldwide he is part and parcel of the sport they fell in love with. Murray has gained a global following since 1978 when he started as the BBC television commentator, but his career began in 1948 traveling around the United Kingdom covering motorbike events for radio.

He has a distinctive, enthusiastic commentary style and is known for his gentlemanly and considerate conduct, seeing the best in drivers. There is no doubt that without him Formula 1 would not be as popular as it is now.

Just before his 90th birthday I had the opportunity to meet him in his house in the beautiful English countryside to talk about how he started, the challenges of commentating with James Hunt and why he rates Prost ahead of Senna.
