Murray Walker, 1923-2021
Murray Walker had many lives, he was a veteran World War II tank commander, advertising executive and motorsport commentator. He was best known for his high octane and electric delivery of live Formula One coverage for the BBC between 1976 and 1996 and for ITV between 1997 and 2001. His commentary partnership with James Hunt has never been bettered.
Indeed Murray Walker will never be bettered, he was known as the voice of Formula One and always will be. Walker lived to a grand old age, but time is an eclipse that catches up with all of us.
