Murray Walker, the voice of Formula One, dies aged 97

Walker, whose broadcasting career spanned more than 50 years, worked for the BBC and ITV, before he retired from commentating in 2001. F1 tweeted: “We are immensely sad to hear that Murray Walker has passed away. Walker was born in Birmingham to father Graham and mother Elsie on 10 October 1923. But before Walker could attempt to emulate him, he was conscripted into the British army, aged 18. But when Hunt beat Lauda to the 1976 title, Walker’s life changed. At the BBC, Walker was partnered by Hunt for 13 years before his death in 1993.
