Murray Walker’s Formula One Heroes, by Murray Walker & Simon Taylor
Murray Walker's Formula One HeroesPaperback, © 2005 Virgin Books, ISBN 978075310636

Legendary F1 commentator Murray Walker teams up with F1 journalist Simon Taylor to compile this updated version of the book that celebrates Murray’s unbridled passion for Formula One.

In Formula One Heroes, Walker celebrates his most favourites F1 drivers of all time, providing great little snapshots of the likes of Fangio, Moss, Hunt, Andretti, Lauda, Prost, Senna and Mansell.

The presentation is nicely tailored, with general career stats for each and a couple of quick bullet points outlining why they make Walker’s shortlist, before we get to the more detailed analysis of each character.

Despite having left the commentary box some years before penning this updated version with Taylor, Walker’s passion for F1 is still very raw and tangible, and this is an easy and enthusiastic read from one of F1’s most-loved personalities.
