Richard Hammond claims to be good at driving. After all, he was a motoring journalist, before joining Top Gear to complete the trio of Clarkson, May, and Hammond.
However, several years ago he crashed his car at 288 MPH, which put him in a coma for weeks, and led to him suffering brain damage. And now, he’s done it again while filming for The Grand Tour.
To be fair to Hammond this crash wasn’t quite as bad as the original one. Mainly because he was going much slower this time around. But still, he’s lucky to walk away again.
Richard Hammond is nicknamed the hamster, but I think he must have been a cat in a former life. Which means he still has seven lives left out of a total of nine.
