(GMM) Murray Walker, the legendary British formula one commentator, has been immortalized with a star on the Walk of Fame of his home city Birmingham.

"It's very flattering indeed," Walker, born there in 1923, told the BBC.

Toyota F1 driver Timo Glock, of Germany, will sample the controls of the Japanese marque's Le Mans prototype of 1998 and 1999, the GT-One, at the Old Timer Grand Prix event at the Nurburgring later this summer.

Reigning GP2 champion Glock, 26, apologized after colliding with F1 veteran David Coulthard at last week's Silverstone test. In the pages of The Daily Telegraph, 37-year-old Coulthard is critical of the sport's latest generation of drivers.

"I would say some of these young guys don't seem to know what's happening around or behind them, which is almost as important as what's happening in front of them. It's either in you or it's not. We can all learn from our mistakes, I suppose, but with some of them it's going to be bloody expensive until they do," he said.
