Today we say farewell to one of the greats of our sport, Murray was the voice of F1 for so many years, he put his heart and soul into commentating. The legend will always live on in our memories but today in Murrays words Ive got to stop because I have a lump in my throat

So sad to hear the news about Murray. He was inspirational, supportive and a legend. I feel honoured to have worked in a neighbouring booth to him and then with him directly when I joined the BBC and he came along to Silverstone. His voice will stay with me forever

Deeply saddened to learn of the death of my mentor Murray Walker. Just shy of his century. We lived some great experiences together on the road, many laughs and endless stories. A life incredibly well lived.

Hum…interesting to see the lack of stability from the rear end. That corner in Bahrain always gives you a good idea of how the car behaves. Mercedes will I’m pretty sure work and find solutions

Very sad to learn that Murray Walker has passed away. @F1 Grand Prix commentator for over 25 years for the BBC and ITV, notably with James Hunt, he was the voice of Formula 1. All the @FIA family pays tribute to him. My thoughts are with his loved ones.

@CroftyF1 The tech to make the timing screens to sort lap cars dropping back is very basic. We do it fine in Indycar. The extra fuel you save is irrelevant as you are still a lap down.
