Welcome! Here you will find the best of Martin Brundle’s witty, informative and wry comments (as well as the sarcastic and sometimes all-too-brutally honest ones!) during television coverage of Formula 1 Grand Prix races from 2002 until the end of the 2011 season. (A link to earlier quotes can be found at the end of the 2002 page.)

Any quotes I missed which you would like to see included can be sent to me here.

Racing Lines ceased updating at the end of 2011.
Sadly the site which continued the tradition in 2012 (brundleandfriends.blogspot.com/ ) only lasted for a few races. If anybody knows of any other site quoting Martin’s best lines, please let me know.

Martin has his own site at www.martinbrundle.com/ and is also on Twitter twitter.com/MBrundleF1

With great reluctance, I ceased updating this site at the end of 2011. I just can’t justify to myself the cost of buying into Sky and Sky Sports purely in order to get access to their Formula 1 channel, and I don’t have any interest in any other sports to make the expense worthwhile.

I gave some thought to opening the site to others to provide submissions, but I’m reluctant to post anything which I can’t check for accuracy first, and I don’t want to be in a position of misquoting Martin.

It has been a thoroughly enjoyable ten years picking the best of Martin’s comments for the site (and stopping myself from simply quoting the entire commentary!) and I shall miss it more than you can imagine. I’ll even miss dragging myself out of bed at oh-christ-hundred-hours for the early races!

Love and hugs to everyone,

One of my readers is seeking a recording of the Grid Walk during the Monaco Grand Prix in 2002. If anyone has any kind of recording of this and would be willing to lend it to her, or can upload it so that she can download it, please email me here and I’ll put the two of you in contact with each other. Thanks!
