Murray Walker Biography

Graeme Murray Walker OBE will always be known as THE voice of Formula 1 motorsport commentary. He was educated at Highgate School and Sandhurst, and for most of his career he worked for the BBC, but when it lost the contract for F1 coverage to the company ITV, Walker continued his commentating there.

He is famous in the UK for his very distinctive enthusiastic commentary style. Walker made his debut in 1949 alongside Max Robertson. He commentated on Formula 1 through to the 2001 United States Grand Prix at Indianapolis. Since his retirement many have missed his distinctive voice, which seemed to rise and fall in tone along with the revving of the car engines.

Murray Walker wrote a series of annuals for the Grand Prix season, Murray Walker's Grand Prix Year, for Hazelton Publishing from 1987 to 1997.
