"Knowing, as the tyre explodes and then disintegrates, that this particular clip can only end in disaster. And knowing that it was me inside the car, that the white crash helmet just visible above the bodywork contained my head and that the accident about to unfold was going to turn into one of the biggest events in my life."

"When I sat down to watch this particular clip for the first time, I knew how it ended. What I didn’t expect was to be watching a bloke who didn’t seem like me talk about a jet car. But then the bloke I was watching hadn’t yet crashed a jet car at 288mph and so wasn’t really me at all."

Well, I love topgear, however I had no idea this happened to Hammond. It is good that he is doing alright.
