Jeremy Clarkson admitted that the injuries suffered by his colleague Hammond after his high-speed car smash in Switzerland will inevitably affect filming for 'The Grand Tour'.
The planned second series of ‘The Grand Tour’ will inevitably be affected by Richard Hammond’s broken knee that he sustained in a recent high-speed car crash, his colleague Jeremy Clarkson has admitted.
47 year old Hammond was extremely fortunate to escape with his life after he careered off a Swiss mountainside at 120mph in his £2 million electric supercar, which burst into flames.
While he sustained little more than a broken knee in terms of injuries, it does mean that he is currently unable to drive, putting a big question mark over the second series of his Amazon Prime show ‘The Grand Tour’, which he co-hosts with his former ‘Top Gear’ colleagues Clarkson and James May.

£4.5 million per episode must be able to buy a LOT of old cars.
Fans of Jeremy Clarkson’s reign on ‘Top Gear’ can be assured that the new Amazon Prime show will be as excessively silly as ever, after the presenter posted photographic evidence of a car wreck he was involved in during filming in Barbados.
The disgraced former BBC presenter, who was sacked after the legendary ‘fracas’ with a producer which occurred almost exactly a year ago on the last series of ‘Top Gear’, admitted that he wrote off one of the cars he was driving while shooting the new big-budget Amazon Prime series on the Caribbean island with trusty colleagues Richard Hammond and James May.
May's new show with his former 'Top Gear' colleagues Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond is due to be premiered "in the autumn of next year".
Though he’s just commenced filming the much-talked about Amazon Prime series along with Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond, former ‘Top Gear’ co-presenter James May reckons that whatever the BBC comes up with in their absence will be a “credible rival” for their own show.
The 52 year old former BBC presenter, who along with Hammond followed Clarkson out of the door at the network after the latter was sacked following the infamous ‘fracas’ in March, appeared on ITV’s ‘This Morning’ and said that he wasn’t concerned about the competition from their former employers, according to the Mirror.
James May leaving the BBC in June 2015
It's unlikely, but the criminal investigation case over the incident on the 'Top Gear' Christmas special has been re-opened by an Argentinian court of appeals.
A court in Argentina is re-opening a criminal investigation against Jeremy Clarkson and ‘Top Gear’, with regard to the controversial Christmas special episode set in the South American state, with prosecutors seeking a three-year sentence for the former presenter.
Clarkson and his ‘Top Gear’ colleague Richard Hammond and James May sparked fury in the southern-most province of Tierra Del Fuego in October last year, when Clarkson drove the whole 1,400 mile trip in a red Porsche with the licence plate H982 FKL – taken to be a reference to the Falklands War between Argentina and Britain by irate locals and veterans of the conflict.

But the new presenter has yet to reveal the full line-up
The Top Gear presenting line-up - it’s had more drama than the cobbles of Corrie and the square of Eastenders. Since Jeremy Clarkson had his contract ended with the BBC One show after a fracas with a producer, there’s been rumours (Jodie Kidd), possibilities (Jensen Button) and definite nos (Sue Perkins, who had to quit Twitter after the trolls told her they didn’t want to see her on the show).
Chris Evans has picked a team for the new Top Gear series
Now Chris Evans, the one constant since the trio of Clarkson, May and Hammond left, has revealed that the newest line-up has been picked and there will be “announcements pending”.

Clarkson left ‘Top Gear’ earlier this year, following a fracas with one of the show’s producers.
Jeremy Clarkson has said he considered doing “nothing at all” after his axing from 'Top Gear' earlier this year, until Amazon Prime came to the rescue. Writing in his Sunday Times column, Clarkson also said he had no idea that his co-hosts James May and Richard Hammond would refuse to do the show without him.
Jeremy Clarkson considered doing “nothing at all”, after ‘Top Gear’ axing.
Writing about his feelings in the days after his firing, Clarkson said, “I didn’t really know what I was going to do. A large part of me considering the appealing option of ‘nothing at all’. A smaller part thought I should change tack and do a programme about farming.”
The former ‘Top Gear’ presenter was urged to take a "complete break,” following his firing from the BBC show.
Jeremy Clarkson has revealed he was sent to rehab over the summer, following his sacking from ‘Top Gear’. The presenter said he was ordered to take a "complete break” by doctors, due to the stress of dealing with his exit from the BBC series. Clarkson left the show in March following a much publicised 'fracas' with producer, Oisin Tymon.
Jeremy Clarkson has revealed he entered rehab for stress over the summer.
Writing in his Sunday Times column Clarkson said, 'Back in the summer it was decided by people with serious faces and stethoscopes that I needed a complete break. And they weren't talking about two weeks in the sun with a book, and a million cocktail parties every night. They were talking about a whole month in the Stone Age.’

A trademark application for the strange name was reported by BuzzFeed.
The new Amazon motoring show to be presented by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May might be getting a rather bizarre title. Legal documents unearthed in a new report suggest that the upcoming show might have the name ‘Gear Knobs’. Okaaaay…
A trademark application, filed two weeks before the former ‘Top Gear’ trio announced their new deal with Amazon’s Prime Instant Video service on July 30th, was discovered by BuzzFeed. This suggests that Clarkson and co. will not only be sticking with the kind of laddish humour that’s made them globally popular, but have also decided to annoy their former BBC employers in the process.
