"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'."
