Go! Go! Go! Murray Walker is back as Channel 4 unveils its team for F1 season
The new Formula One season is right around the corner and Channel 4 mean business.
The channel, who have picked up broadcasting duties from the BBC, have announced their presenting team for the 2016 season and it's boasting a wealth of talent and experience.

Formula One fans can look forward to a veritable who's who of television talent led by Steve Jones and David Coulthard.
Ben Edwards moves from the BBC to lead the commentary team, while former drivers Mark Webber, Alain Prost and Suzie Wolff will be on hand to provide insight to life on the grid, and they'll be joined by experts including Irishman Eddie Jordan (pulling double duty alongside Top Gear commitments) and Bruno Senna.
Best of all though, is the return of legendary commentator Murray Walker, who will back on our screens at the age of 92 as he is assigned to carry out sit-down interviews with some of the sport's big names.
Fan reaction to the team certainly seems positive, with a number of petrolheads taking to Twitter to voice their approval.
@C4F1 that's a hell of a good line up you've got there.
