    For me growing up Murray, Martin, Ted, James Allen (his pitlane days, not his commentary days) & Louise Goodman will always be the voices of F1 for me. I’ll never forget Murray commenting on Schumacher marching to the McLaren garage. “James! James! He’s going to Coulthard!”Those were the days.

    That brought a tear to my eye. Thank you gentlemen for a very sensitive tribute that resonated perfectly with my memories of the sport from 1981 onwards in NZ then much later in the UK, with Murray Walker as the voice of the sport and the entire genre in the English language.

      I later moved to Switzerland in the early 2000s and enjoyed a similar history with Heinz Prüller on Austrian commentary on ORF in German (because of course the English commentary was not available across 194 cable channels in 18 languages!). Thank you Murray and Heinz for helping me improve both my English and my German!

    i am surprised that Martin didn't mention commentating at Belgium 89, certain races in 95, when he either had retired from the race (89) and James Hunt was ill. Or playing musical chairs with Suzuki in 95. and if anyone thinks my definition is strange Martin did 9 races, Suzuki 8 swapped throughout the year.

    How much longer will last in its present form ? The failure of leadership since 2011 has lead to a nose dive for this sport who has to compete with the finite sponsorship purse world wide. It been unable to attract two further teams on the grid due to capital barriers,media contract handcuffs for sponsors who have simply walked away from teram sponsorship to other sports. Whilst the smaller teams have been unable to compete as the sponsorship monies comming in have not been ditributed uniformly. We are comming to another crunch point when the combustion engine must be replaced by other technologies to meet climate change.The sport finds itself with no chair when the music stops. The latest vacum of leadership has let radical left wing political groups start the corrosive process of exclusion of sponsors, countries, and Brands from been associated with the sport. It is unclear whether Steffio Deminicarli apealsment stile will help this decline. Already he has taken his eye off the ball for the EU legal requirement to introduced quotas for all teams of 5% of severely disabled to be employed at senior level in all teams and suppliers this year and publish in the consolidated balance sheet on how this is going to be acheived in the next twelve months. The European/UK courts could fine promoters of the sport for not complying with this primary legislative requirement which could cancel some races in the European area. The retirement of Frank Williams and Robert Kubica with semmingly no replace of severely disabled replacement candidates has put on the red light to law enforcers and lobby groups. The courts have already warned that the sport must comply with disabled inclusion or risk procecution as they have had ten years to substantially change the sport to comply with the primary legislation. It is pointed out that the blind and severely disabled are the only legally recognised in primary legislation for quotas to be imposed on F1. This is distinct from political lobby groups or lower legislative boddies. How will Steffino and press license holders comply with this primary legislation in the next twelve months after ten years of inaction and deniel?

    I never got to hear Murray call a race as I did not start closely following F1 until 2005 and in the U.S. we have had our own announcers during that time, at least until a few years ago. But the stories were great and it sounds like he had the ability to really make a race come alive.

    Well said gentlemen. Met Murray when he signed my copy of his autobiography. He spent time talking to every single person there despite the attempts to speed things up. As you said he wanted to know about you. What your thoughts of the current F1 were. He was more interested in that than telling you about himself.

    Show me a highlight reel of commentary just 5 minutes long that covers the period from Murray retiring to present day. It will be almost impossible to fill. Sky and all the broadcasters need to think why that is, because they would have so many more subscribers if they had a killer commentator like Murray. I would certainly pay £20 extra a month for Murray commentary.

    When I was 10 years old and trying to watch as much racing as I could find on Canadian and U.S. TV it was the BBC feed that we got in Canada with Murray and James that really stood out. U.S. TV commentators were boring, Murray and James were hilarious, even if the races were boring they were awesome.

    So many great memories of watching F1 with Murray commentating. One of my personal favourites was a scene with Hakkinen making a pass on someone. The pass was replayed immediately and Murray says “and Hakkinen passes him AGAIN!!!” To which Martin said “it’s a replay Murray” flatly. Only Murray could make a mistake like that so endearing. Martin was also a gentleman as the straight man to Murray’s over the top, speak before you think style of enthusiasm.
