Martin Brundle

Martin Brundle

Martin Brundle may be best known to Formula 1 fans as the primary voice of the sport thanks to an award-winning broadcasting career dating back to 1997, but his career goes far beyond commentating. 

Martin had an unorthodox route to Formula One, starting his racing career at the age of 12, competing in grass track racing. He then worked his way through  Hot Rod Racing, Formula Ford, Saloon Car Racing and  British Formula 3 before making the move to Formula 1.  In his debut at the Brazilian Grand Prix in 1984 he finished fifth. 

He competed in Formula 1 for 10 years. During  his career, he drove for several teams, including Tyrrell, Zakspeed, Williams, Brabham, Benetton, Ligier, McLaren, and Jordan.

In 1997, having largely retired from motor racing, Martin joined the legendary British broadcaster Murray Walker in the commentary box for ITV Sport and, after 12 seasons, moved seamlessly across to the BBC where he remained until joining Sky Sports F1 in 2012, where he continues today . 

In his role at Sky he broadcasts to English-speaking audiences worldwide and his grid walk interviews are one of the most popular segments of each race broadcast. 

Aside from the breadth of his experiences Martin is one of Formula 1’s best story tellers and he is also a star speaker on the Formula 1 circuit.
