My preview of the next few grands prix

Post categories:

Murray Walker | 11:16 UK time, Friday, 6 May 2011

There is so much to look forward to over the next few races. First there is the Turkish Grand Prix, on a track very popular with the drivers. After that it's on to the true start of the European season in Spain. Then the incomparable Monaco Grand Prix and unique Canada, which always seems to produce a fantastic race, before I am back on this blog after the European Grand Prix in Valencia, which to be brutally honest has a track that does not live up to what is a great city.

I'm sure we're in for some fascinating action. In the meantime, I hope you will enjoy my preview of the next five races.

    How come you're going to be away for so long Murray?

    I know it's a bit anorak-y, but could you balance Murray's links a bit louder against the commentary clips and music. Subjectively, he sounds a bit lost and objectively he's about 4 to 8dB down. I'll get me coat...

    Another excellent preview. As Gary commented above it is ashame that there is so long between your video clips.

    I love you to bits Murray but you are not saying anything in this Blog. A few highlights from last year and a description of each circuit. I would expect a more insightful anaysis from you.

    A bit dissapointing murray.

    For the races to come that you have touched on, you have mentioned the only Redbull drivers, but on canada you failed to even mention Lewis' commanding victory last season.

    So in esense....the only guys you have talked about in this blog is vettel & webber (redbull drivers only).

    Have you been hanging out more with Coulthard recently by any chance Murray?

    @5 spot on.

    might as well call it muarry walker's red bull preview.

    How I miss Muzza. f1 on tv has never been the same since! OK, not the most scintillating or insightful preview perhaps, but this man is a living legend and I will not hear a bad word against him. JMHO.

    Nice one Murray! I agree with you I think Mark and Jenson to are both overdue for a win. Shame you're not making another video for so long but i'm glad you will be back with us for the british grand prix.

    Oh Murray please come back soon - just watched World Superbikes on Eurosports,
    then the Turkish GP, then the 2nd Superbikes race - god do we need you back in
    the commentory box. Please tell Brundle & Co we are not interested in "Kers" and all the other geek terms - what we want is commentators with a love of the sport AND
    have a sense of humour. The Eurosport guys are brilliant - Brundle & Co -- dire!!!

    I'm sorry but I disagree with your comments about the excitement to come in the next few F1 races, since the lack of it has just been demonstrated with the continued dominance of the 2011 season by Vettel and Red Bull. And now that Mr Ecclestone has changed the points scoring to give a huge advantage to any good driver (and there are several, not just Vettel) with the best car, who regularly wins races, this season will probably be over with several races to go. So we will be back to the Schumacher era of dominance, except that then there were less points difference than now. At least when Button won the first six races a couple of seasons ago, there was some excitement as the other car manufacturers caught up with Brawn and the title was only decided at the end; had Button benefitted from the same points system as Vettel now, he would have won the season early too. Its a great shame, as F1 has lost most of the entertainment of the last few years, and if things don't change soon, will lose some of its TV audience (including myself) too!
