I enjoyed your 100 Things That Made F1 Great, some of which were in my time and some which were not. I, too, could not see why F1 abandoned the wonderful sweeps and curves of the full Brands Hatch circuit for the sterile flat of Silverstone.
But how could you leave out something that is so sadly missed today by all us who, for whatever reason, can only watch Formula One from the safety of the sofa — the infectious, engine-shrieking commentary of Murray Walker? All the more missed since the only man who came close is your own Simon Taylor. His presence on ITV’s ad-strewn coverage is sorely missed.
I am, yours etc,
