  • This episode was amazing is all I can say.

    10
    This episode was the reason I watch Top Gear. When Richard Hammond (Hamster) had to drive the Formula 1 car, you could truely see how much of a challenge it was to drive it.



    I now have a new found respect for all Formula 1 drivers ( well even more than I had before this episode) and for Richard Hammond too. For all that didnt know, Richard crashed a Rocket car at very high speeds and nearly lost his life. So getting into the seat of such a powerful machine would not have been an easy thing to do for him.



    To everybody that hasnt seen this episode, its definately worth it, it is one of the best Top Gear episodes I have seen, in regards to serious episodes, not just the silly and humourous ones.moreless

    • Jeremy Clarkson: Some say that when he slows down, Brake Lights come on in his buttocks. And that if he'd been the Manager of the England Football squad, he wouldn't have been a feckless, ginger, gum-chewing buffoon who ruined it fir all of us. All we know is he's called the Stig.

    • Jeremy Clarkson: So who do you want to be your team mate next year? I mean somebody useless presumably.
      Lewis Hamilton: You want a job?

    • Jeremy Clarkson: This is the Stevens Derailleur, which has eight clutches. And what kind of dullard would think that was brilliant?


      James May: That's brilliant!

    • James May: No, no, I'll tell you something else interesting…
      Richard Hammond Not with a kitchen knife sticking through your neck you won't.

    • Jeremy Clarkson: My guest tonight once sang about a 'semi by the sea'. And funnily enough, James May once had a similar experience, but when a dreadnought sailed by.

    • James May: Next week, the three of us take part in our first ever motor race and a 24 hour one at that. And I only get lost once.
      Richard Hammond: And I crash – again.
