The updated video at BBC is pessimistic about the head injury, especially considering how far they airlifted him since there were hospitals nearer to the site of the accident, which they probably would have taken him to if it was just a routine check for injuries....

Let's hope their just being sensational...

It really puts into perspective how dangerous and risky the clips on Top Gear are, the ones that some take for granted.

I obviously hope that he makes a full recovery, and I hope that he's back for the new season and that JC and May will be able to poke fun at him about it, or revere him for having the balls to wipe out at 208mph.

That Beeb reporter sounds pretty well-informed on Top Gear..."mouthy Jeremy Clarkson" :lol:

this really really blows. i hope he recovers fully from that and is able to continue, it just won't be the same without him.

the last thing we need now is speculation about the future of top gear. we don't even know for sure what happened to him at this stage. he could leave the hospital tomorrow and get back to filming or he could be unable to work anymore. and i'm not even considering any worse outcomes...

i just hope he is not seriously injured and will be well soon!

to look at things on the positive side...
given his personality, he might be fighting doctors' orders to get the hell out of the hospital.


i really hope that he comes out ok.. :cry:

Blimey, that man on the BBC one news with that rather scary mouth scared the sh*t out of me when he said "Richard Hammond has crashed" :cry:

Hope he'll be OK!

i can't find anything like that on the bbc's website, so lets not suggest anything like that when we don't know!
