    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Some Murray Walker ones, found them on this site http://rao.caltech.edu/murray.html

    "Do my eyes deceive me, or is Senna's Lotus sounding rough ?"

    "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"

    "He is shedding buckets of adrenalin in that car"

    "So Bernie [Ecclestone], in the seventeen years since you bought McLaren, which of your many achievements do you think was the most memorable ?" Bernie Answers, "Well I don't remember buying McLaren." [Bernie Ecclestone used to own the Brabham team].

    Murray: "What's that? There's a BODY on the track!!!"
    James: "Um, I think that that is a piece of BODY-WORK, from someone's car."

    "I don't want to tempt fate but Damon Hill is now only half a lap from his first Grand Prix win and..and HE'S SLOWING DOWN, DAMON HILL IS SLOWING DOWN..HE'S..HE'S STOPPED."

    "1.4 seconds may not seem like much but in Formula One, 1.4 seconds is light years"

    "...Cruel luck for Alesi, second on the grid. That's the first time he had started from the front row in a Grand Prix, having done so in Canada earlier this year..."

    "And there's the man in the green flag!"

    Murray: "And look at the flames coming from the back of Berger's McLaren"
    James: "Actually, Murray, they're not flames, it's the safety light."

    "...and there's no damage to the car.....except to the car itself."

    "and I interrupt myself to bring you this...."

    "This is an interesting circuit because it has inclines, and not just up, but down as well."

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

    "Tambay's hopes , which were nil before, are absolutely zero now."

    "You can't see a digital clock because there isn't one."

    "The Italian GP at Monaco..."

    "...the enthusiastic enthusiasts..." (Italy 1994)

    "Ukyo Katayama is undoubtedly the best formula 1 driver that grand prix racing has ever produced'

    "As you can see, visually, with your eyes..."

    "Andrea de Cesaris...the man who has won more Grands Prix than anyone else without actually winning one of them."

    "And we have had 5 races so far this year, Brazil, Argentina, Imola, Schumacher and Monaco!"

    "And Damon Hill is coming into the pit lane, yes it's Damon Hill coming into the Williams pit, and Damon Hill in the pit, no it's Michael Schumacher!"

    "Mansell is slowing it down, taking it easy. Oh no he isn't! It's a lap record."

    "Into lap 53, the penultimate last lap but one"

    "There are a lot of IFs in Formula One, in fact IF is Formula One backwards!"
    "Age is just a stupid number"

    20...that's a rather big number :(:(:(

    Even more here: http://aca-vnt.mcc.ac.uk/ScrapBook/walkerisms.htm

    Murray was a machine!

    "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."

    Murray: "And there are flames coming from the back of Prost's car as he enters the swimming pool."

    James: "Well, that should put them out then."

    "Alesi is in second place and Hill is in second place..."

    "As you can see, visually, with your eyes..."

    "....Schumacher crosses the line to start another lap, and there's nothing there!"

    And from: http://www.lloydia.com/quotes.htm

    " ... and Edson Arantes di Nascimento, commonly known to us as Pele hands the award to Damon Hill, commonly known to us as ... um... Damon ... Hill ... "

    "... Mansell can see him in his earphone..."

    "...and he's lost both right front tyres"

    "...and Schumacher has just completed lap 77 out of 73"

    "A battle is developing between them...I say developing because it's not yet on."

    "A sad ending, albeit a happy one, here at Montreal for today's Grand Prix."

    "And Michael Schumacher is actually in a very good position. He is in last place."

    "That's history. I say history because it happened in the past"

    "The Arrows is in! The mechanics attack the car!"

    And of course the classic:

    "The car in front is absolutely unique, except for the one behind which is identical!"

    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Very true, I've gone off it lately. The amusing thing is I thought Murray was quite young when I first heard him, then was surprised to see this balding old man leaping all over the place when it moved to ITV and they had a camera in the Com Box.

    My favourite is a Brian Carney one.

    Bill Arthur: "You must be over the moon Brian"
    Carney: "Bill, I'm as happy as a rabbit with two cocks"
    Bill Arthur: "We are on live tv Brian"

    There are lots of brilliant ones - one of my favourites being "McCoy takes a look between his legs, and likes what he sees" from a horse racing commentator.
