Formula 1: One year since Murray Walker died

Last updated on Less than a minute agoLess than a minute ago.From the section Formula 1. It’s just over a year since legendary commentator Murray Walker passed away, aged 97. Hamilton’s book is packed with some of Walker’s most famous and delightful on-air blunders, or ‘Murrayisms’. The book opens with one of Walker’s most famous pieces of commentary, from the final laps of the 1986 Australian Grand Prix. Hamilton calls this piece of commentary, “Murray in extremis.”. “I thought to myself, ‘what is the essence of Murray Walker? However, when Hunt was first introduced, Hamilton says that Walker was concerned the BBC were trying to, “ease him out”. “The Murrayisms are such an integral part of him,” Hamilton observes.
