Anything but that, Jezza!
Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May are back at it again. The trio are currently filming the first segment of their new, still unnamed show which will feature a LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and a Porsche 918 Spyder. But if Clarkson’s original idea for life after Top Gear, none of the above may have happened. In his weekly column for the The Sunday Times, Clarkson revealed that life post-Top Gear "had not been easy" and that he "didn’t really know what he (I) was going to do. A large part of me considering the appealing option of 'nothing at all'.
"A smaller part thought I should change tack and do a programme about farming." He also revealed that, at first, he didn’t know Hammond and May’s plans, but once they left Top Gear as well, things moved quickly. "And then, riding over the horizon on a white charger, in a brown cardboard envelope, came Amazon…(they) made us an offer in English – well, it was in American, actually, but that’s close enough – and that was that, we had a new home." As for that new show? "It’s going to be all new. New name. New segments. New ideas. Everything is different. Apart from James May, obviously, who is still in 1953. And Richard Hammond, who still doesn’t quite understand anything. And me, who thinks everything can be solved with a hammer."
