    I suspect every little bump he gets now will be reported with relish.

    They are hopeless, two stories mixed up and it's still there. Most newspapers would remove it within hours.

    WTF? Does the Mail have an editor(s) or are their stories taken from the rejected pile of random monkey-typewriter texts of the 50s?

    OK so I was reading the "Daily Mail" today (don't even start) and what was on the bottom of page three but an article about Hammond. The article was actually about what caused the 314mph crash and that he did actually reach that speed but the last paragraph was the more interesting bit. They say that Hammond did indeed have another crash but they STILL think that he got shunted off Silverstone in a Bugatti Veyron. What is wrong with them!??

    (In my defence, we get the Times, Independant and the Gaurdian aswell)

    I do hope you recycle all of that paper. That paragraph from the Mail just proves what we (Top Gear fans) say: they don't actually watch the programme and just write negative articles without any regard for facts.

    Richard will be on Sky News one day next week. I don't know the day, but it will be at lunch time with Kay Burley. I'm not sure if it will be one of those 2nd life things that James took part in on Thursday. I'm sure the Sky News website will have the details (that's if I don't have time to find it myself and post here).
