    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'."

    "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'."

    • Hammond could have died, and this Rimac guy goes on and on about his cars and not an ounce of care for the driver...

    • "Do you have another car?"

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