I’m not trying to start a revolution but I do believe we owe it to our beloved Murray Walker to throw some #getwellmuzza love out on Twitter and other social media outlets. I know it seems a bit daft coming from an American and  while I did not grow up listening to and loving Murray Walker’s inimitable style calling all of those decades of Formula One races, I can assure that this singular man had an impact far greater than the mere confines of the British Isles.

Murray walker is recovering with a broken pelvis after a fall while on vacation in Germany. The legend was born in 1923 and served as a tank commander in WWII. He started calling Formula One racing in 1949 and became the voice of F1 throughout the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. He retired in 2001.

Let’s all throw some support behind a legend of motor sport and a singular man as he recovers.

    Well said Todd. Wishing dear Murray a speedy and comfortable recovery. Looking forward to seeing him at Silverstone; something that has become somewhat of a tradition.

    Murry is a instutution I dont think he realized how many emotions he touched or envoked

    His classic easy to hear commentary was a staple in which the like has never been paralleled …funny witty charming they dont make them like that anymore

    I felt he retiired way too early but he deserved it just the same…..

    I listened ot his broadcasts religiously and he always kept it interesting …….

    Ive got a few questions for him over the years….namely Aguru Suzuki at Monza in a Footwork ……..theres a funny story there……” I heard you got pictures”

    Anyway Murray cheer up and heal up well !!

    Get well quickly Murray, because you have many fans here across the big pond, and in the colonies

    The tests Murray Walker received in hospital picked up early signs of cancer. This is treatable, so maybe in some small way the fall was a good thing?

    Once again, get well soon Murray.

    Murray Walker is a legend, I grew up listening to his energetic commentary.
    His passion for F1 certainly rubbed off on me!
    I hope he recovers from his fall & more importantly from the cancer.
    He left a hole in F1 commentary that will never be filled.
