DON'T listen to ITV news, they chat shit about everything they report about.hype said:wow just saw this on itv news, said it took him 10mins to be cut from the reckage.. this dont sound good
Well, they know each other an he is a former top gear presenter, he knows how Hammond is. Appalling is a bit of an over reaction really.splatrowe said:First of all let me just wish Richard Hammond a speedy recovery from his accident. I wish his family all the best and hope to see him rejoin the Top Gear team soon.
I would also like to take this opportunity to express my disgust at the comments made by Quentin Wilson that were aired on the 10 o'clock news tonight. They may have been aired out of context as is often the case but nevertheless amounted to a veiled 'should've been more careful' which I find totally inappropriate when describing someone who is currenty in a "critical condition".
If Quentin Wilson were to have been in an accident i'm sure neither he or his family would appreciate someone going on record with comments like that at this time. Sorry to rant, but I just found it appalling.
don't get the should have been more carefull, more of a "it happens to us all, he got unlucky" I heard the call as well.Former Top Gear presenter Quentin Willson said the presenter was "irreplaceable".
He said: "He is a wonderful, unique and distinctive Top Gear presenter.
"He has brought an awful lot to the programme and his indefatigable energy, the fact that he tries absolutely anything once, may have been the reason that he has overstepped the mark a bit.
"He has turned Top Gear into a gang show with Jeremy and James and the three of them have wowed audiences all over the world and he is an international personality."
Mr Willson added: "There is no pressure from the BBC or the producer to take undue risks.
"But that pressure is in your own head. You want to do an item on the programme which is mindblowing.
"You want to do a fantastic item that blows everybody away."
