    A friend and my self meet murray in Adelaide in 2008. He gave us over two hours of his time just the 3 off us. We spoke about the 50's all the way to the current time. It was amazing to hear is stories of the legendary tracks and drivers. The very next day Murray spotted my mate and myself and greeted us by name and then spent another hours with us untill his PA dragged him away to a meeting that he was late for. Thank you Murray i will never forget that or the years of hearing your voice late on a Sunday night

    Murrey signed my autograph book several times. It gave me an opportunity to chat to him. Unlike some others. Some ran off like scaled cats. Others ignored you. Some just outright refused. Only Stirling matched him for courtesy.

    He was the conduit between Alain Prost, Ayrton Senna, Nigel Mansell, Nelson Piquet and all the other characters in Formula One and myself. His enthusiasm was infectious, his words made me fall in love with Formula One. He was both a father figure and the excited child, without a mean bone in his body, and a gentleman of the highest order. I'm from Melbourne and I spent my childhood and early adulthood staying up late every second Sunday night to hear his words. I loved the excitement and rejoiced in the Murrayisms. He said he loved Australia, and my word Australia loved him right back. It hasn't been the same since the 2001 US GP but his appearances in the intervening years have always been fondly received. To say he will be missed now is a masterstroke of understatements. I met him once when he signed my copy of his autobiography - if that wasn't already priceless, it most certainly is now. Rest In Peace Murray.

    A fantastic tribute from Ted & Crofty there, many things well said indeed!👍 I don't think Formula 1 would've had the same popularity if not for Murray Walker's commentary, he really brought life into it even if nothing interesting was happening, just having him there doing what he does best at all times!👏

    The Murray Walker sound track will NEVER be bettered. He lived F1 and everyone in F1 respected him even those who never knew him in person, but we knew him for decades and sadly missed him when he retired. Nobody WILL EVER be better than him as nobody has his passion for talking about F1.

    The last time I felt the loss of someone that has played a big part in my life as Murray Walker did, was in 2011 when we lost Gary Moore. There were tears then and there are tears now. Such was the immense impact the first time I heard Murray Walker on TV, I was hooked on F1 from that moment. Thank you, Murray Walker.

    I wonder if F1 can have Murray's old voice interrupt the start and have him say it's 1 light, 2 lights, 3 lights, 4 lights, 5 lights GO, GO, GO! Just an old broadcast audio play for the start of the race. That would be nice.

    Master of his craft my ass! The guy talked nonsense most of the time. Often mistaking team mates or even teams. He was completely frustrating. I remember James Hunt getting often annoyed with him when utter dribble would come out of his mouth. All these guys are paying lovely tributes to the man but all know he was actually useless at the job. Martin Brundle needing to point out he was getting all excited about the wrong car or driver so many times. I liked the guy as a person but tell the truth please. When he retired. We started getting far higher quality information and insights.

    A true LEGEND and a master of his craft. Incredibly sad to hear of Murray's passing. He did for F1 and motorsports in general what the late Peter Allis did for golf. I'm sure they will now be sat enjoying some quips about their respective lives. RIP Murray Walker, a man who I grew up with when watching F1 and rally cross. Sad loss and will be greatly missed.

    I still remember hearing all those classic Murray quotes when he was commenting the BTCC in the early and mid 90's... My personal favorite is from the 1993 championship at Silverstone, when Julian Bailly hit his teammate Will Hoy in the Toyota, making him roll onto his roof, and Murray just instinctivly went with the Toyota slogan "The car in front is a Toyota", and changed it to "The car upside down is a Toyota"!

    You know what annoys me, its when I see replays of races, like some of the ones that have been recently put up on NLcameras with full races or highlights, is when I start watching it and realise its not the actual race I remember because its not Murray doing the commentary. When I watch a race and its not Murray, its just not the same, its lost a big part of what made that era of F1 so special to me. A race commentary without Murray just doesn't sound right.

    I’m new to the F1 scene, but watching clips of old races, I really liked Murray’s chirpy, enthusiastic voice. Drama on track brought out the best in his commentary. I’m sure for all the long-time fans, he will be remembered fondly as a great commentator and person. I wonder if Crofty’s voice will reach similar heights? He also does a splendid job, even though he makes the odd mistake here and there, I mean, so did Murray. But Crofty also brings out the enthusiasm in fans watching at home and his choice of words during high moments is always brilliant.
