'Frail' Murray Walker to sit out British Grand Prix

Legendary former F1 commentator Murray Walker will be a rare absentee at the British Grand Prix this weekend.

Legendary former Formula 1 commentator Murray Walker will be a rare absentee at the British Grand Prix this weekend.

The iconic Briton is synonymous with the sport after serving for decades as a commentator, but now aged 92 he admits that he is "too frail" to be at Silverstone this time around.

"I am an old man, my legs aren't what they used to be," he told The Mirror. "You know four days of walking about at a grand prix is very hard work indeed.

"I would rather quietly stay at home. You never like to say never but I think I have been to my last grand prix. Do I like it? No I don't. But you work with the hand you are dealt."

The Silverstone race gets underway at 1pm on Sunday.
