murray-walker_96858sLegendary Formula One commentator, Murray Walker, who recently suffered a broken pelvis after a fall on a German cruise on the Rhein, has now revealed that he is fighting against cancer.

The 89-year old, who has a multitude of catchphrases to his name,retired from the world of F1 in 2001, has been diagnosed with a “treatable” form of lymphatic system cancer, when blood tests showed the symptoms of the disease following the fall.

According to good friend Maurice Hamilton, Murray is more concerned about missing out on attending this year’s British Grand Prix at the “Home of British Motor Racing” later on this month, as well as the Goodwood Festival of Speed, rather than being focused on undergoing chemotherapy. This is the sign of a man who has breathed motor racing over his professional broadcasting career, and shows no signs of dwindling any time soon.

So, from all the team here at Richland F1, we wish Murray all the very best wishes in his recovery from the fall and his fight against cancer.
