  • Quotes

    • Jeremt Clarkson: Some say that he's the only man in Britain who knows what B&Q stands for. And that he can't give his million-pound bonus back because he's already spent it... on French breast implants. All we know is he's called the Stig.

    • Jeremy Clarkson: Let's get one thing straight from the start: Formula 1 is better than NASCAR.It just is. If you compare them to musical instruments, F1 is a Stradivarius violin, NASCAR is banging a saucepan with a wooden spoon.
