    Murray Walker quotes


    "Even in five years time, he will still be four years younger than Damon Hill."


    "Motor racing can never be totally safe and it never should be in my opinion."


    "IF is a very long word in Formula One; in fact, IF is F1 spelled backwards."


    "The lead car is unique, except for the one behind it which is identical."


    "Anything happens in Grand Prix racing, and it usually does."



    "And now, excuse me while I interrupt myself."



    "I don't make mistakes. I make prophecies which immediately turn out to be wrong."



    "I've no idea what Eddie Irvine's orders are, but he's following them superlatively well."



    "With half the race gone, there is half the race still to go."



    "You might not think that's cricket, and it's not, it's motor racing."

    Agree. He was the voice of F1 for me.

    Amazing life, tank commander in WW2, motorcycle racer, worked in advertising (worked on on the team that came up with 'a mars a day helps you work rest and play' and is credited with coming up with 'Opal Fruits, made to make your mouth water.') and became a 'legend' in commentary.

    RIP Murray

    Re: Murray Walker

    Didn't know he was once in advertising. Does all this now mean we'll see a reintroduction of the famous Murray Mints, and were they in fact his idea?? (you remember - "Murray Mints, Murray Mints, the too good to hurry mints"

    I read his autobiography 'unless I'm very much mistaken' a couple of years ago. A cracking read! He was quite a legend.
