Legendary F1 commentator Murray Walker has died at the age of 97, the British Racing Drivers Club (BRDC) reports.

“It is with great sadness that we report the death of BRDC member Murray Walker,” the BRDC reports.

“A friend, a true motorsport legend, the nation’s favorite commentator and an infectious laugh. We thank Murray for everything he has done for our community. Rest in peace friend. ”

Murray Walker had a career as a commentator of more than fifty years for both the BBC and ITV, before retiring in 2001. He was the voice that guided F1 fans through Formula 1’s most legendary moments, from the world title of James Hunt to that of Damon Hill, which actually gave him a lump in the throat.

Martin Brundle, analyst at ‘Sky Sports’ has already responded on social media with the words: “Rest in peace Murray Walker. Great man in every way. National treasure, communication genius, Formula 1 legend. ”

Formula 1 also shared its condolences via Twitter: “We are very sad to hear that Murray Walker has passed away. His passion and love for the sport inspired millions of fans around the world. He will be a part of our history forever and will be greatly missed. ”
