Richard Hammonds Top Gear contract ran out the same time as James May's contract.

Re: James May

If you ask me it was all cleverly worked out anyway.
Clarkson has been miffed with the beeb and ofcom for ages. We all know that.
Hammond and Mays contracts were up for renewal along with Jezzas. The BBC also sell TG to other channels around the world who then sell advertising based on those episodes - any sudden loss of TG would cause massive refunds to be issued by the BBC.
The timing was perfect for the three of them to walk away and start a new show with another channel, drop the BBC right in it, cost the beeb millions, find themselves nice expensive new contracts and continue doing what they do best - pratting around and getting paid nicely for it.
I said it to the missus ages ago who didn't believe it.. and now the TG producer has quit the bbc too - and now in talks with the trio about their future! I think we can all see that there will probably be a new show with a new name with a very similar format coming our way soon.

Re: James May

I think we can all agree that TOP GEAR on BBC is now dead  Lips are sealed
it makes no difference who they get as presenters , Most will follow JC and crew to their new Channel  Cool

Re: James May

There was a brief discussion on Breakfast this morning mentioning the slating the team gave some cars and that it wouldn't be allowed on a commercial station because of the risk to the holy grail of advertising revenue.
This would water down the appeal for many fans.
The BBC didn't have this constraint.
A commercial TV executive replied saying in so many words that program content and commercial interests would co-exist quite happily.
Yeah....sure they would.

But how many times do you see ferrari, audi, lamborghini and other super car makers advertise on TV? not often. Yes they do test drive cheaper family cars sometimes but most of the time they're only interested in super cars and their foreign sorties in old wrecks.
I don't really see an issue to be honest.
