Murry Walker was a commentator on Formula One racing. He sadly retired a few years back. He was by no means a stupid man, but in the heat of the moment he would occasionally blurt out a sentence which did not make a hell of a lot of sense. These sentences have become known as “Murryism's”. Here are some of the best in no particular order…

“He's obviously gone in for a wheel change. I say obviously because I can't see it”

“With half the race gone, there is half the race still to go” 

“Alboreto has dropped back up to fifth place”

“I can't imagine what kind of problem Senna has. I imagine it must be some sort of grip problem”

“And I interrupt myself to bring you this....”

“Only a few more laps to go and then the action will begin, unless this is the action, which it is.”

“This has been a great season for Nelson Piquet, as he is now known, and always has been.” 

“And the first five places are filled by five different cars.” 

“...the lead is now 6.9 seconds. In fact it's just under 7 seconds.” 

“And an enormous gap building before Mika Hakkinen goes through in third position...when I say enormous it's 1.5 seconds.”

“As you can see, visually, with your eyes...”

“Nigel Mansell - the man of the race - the man of the day - the man from the Isle of Man.”

“Jean Alesi is 4th and 5th.”

“And that just shows you how important the car is in Formula One racing.” 

“And he's done that in a whisker under 10 seconds, call it 9.7 in round figures.

I'll stop my startwatch.”

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