As a sidebar to the sacking of Jeremy Clarkson from Top Gear the future on the show of the other two members of the team Richard Hammond and James May is also uncertain. Richard Hammond has yet to make a proper statement but James May, through his agent, released the following.
James was disappointed to hear that the BBC will not be renewing Jeremy’s contract, however understands that it will have been a difficult deliberation all round and respects the decision.
As to the future of Top Gear, it existed before its current format and will no doubt continue to do so. James’ involvement in that future requires much thought, deliberation and conversation between many people, and at this moment further speculation on that is not useful.
James will be making no further comment at this time.
