    Richard Hammond is back in the UK and able to look back on his crash with good humour.

    The Grand Tour presenter met with Rimac CEO, Mate Rimac, to review data from the Rimac Concept One, and relive the moment he left the track and hurtled 100 metres down a hill, narrowly avoiding crashing into a house.

    "I was aware that I was up high, and that inevitably the car was going to come down," said Hammond.

    "And yeah of course there was a moment of dread - 'Oh God, I'm going to die'."

    Richard Hammond on the moment he crashed

    "And also I was aware that the car was taking just such a beating. I mean if you look at those craters, that's a big hole that's just impact and it looks like the thing has been dropped from space to leave a whole that big. So yeah I was probably going 'well this is it'. In fact that is what was going through my mind. I thought 'I've had it'."

    • "Do you have another car?"

      "Yes but I'm not giving it to you."

      Clever!

    • All I'm going to say is that Hammond seemed like he was trying to batter a personality out of their CEO. I literally fell asleep and wasted a perfectly good beer when I woke up and spilled it all over myself 😭

    • I thought Rimac was cool up until this point. This could have been handled so epicly, and given great PR to Rimac... But Rimac went from sub-zero to seriously uncool in a heartbeat with this pedantic, boring and rather useless twat of a CEO. Over analysing every little detail, if you look carefully at his pictures (edited in paint), they are in fact wrong too. Give the analysing a rest, Richard isn't buying a word of it either, but he puts it beautifully, "I crashed, that what happened". I call bullshit on this guy's analysis of the crash, his pictures edited in paint are hardly science, what a prat "I sink ze car was..." -go home mate. Love how Richard, like the rest of us, almost falls asleep half way through mr. boring's lecture on what his company... I didn't listen if I'm honest.
