Richard Hammond ‘Critical’

Motoring journalist Richard Hammond is critical after being injured while filming a feature on a jet powered car.

The Top Gear presenter was believed to be travelling around 280 mph when his car overturned. He’s currently in Leeds hospital with his family by his side.

Former Top Gear presenter Quentin Willson said the presenter was “irreplaceable”.

He said: “He is a wonderful, unique and distinctive Top Gear presenter.

“He has brought an awful lot to the programme and his indefatigable energy, the fact that he tries absolutely anything once, may have been the reason that he has overstepped the mark a bit.

“He has turned Top Gear into a gang show with Jeremy and James and the three of them have wowed audiences all over the world and he is an international personality.”

Mr Willson added: “There is no pressure from the BBC or the producer to take undue risks.”

We wish you well Richard. You’re a ‘driving God’.
