Richard, who was filming Top Gear, recovered but vowed never to get in the car again.

In a video for YouTube program DriveTribe He said as he approached the car: “You look better in shape than the last time I saw you, anyway.”

And when he added: “Wow, here it is… Oddly enough I remember the last time I got into this, but I don’t remember getting out. So technically, I’m still in it! ”

The fan had a joke about his expense with one saying: “Any car he’s ever ridden almost killed him.”

Another said: “Get him out of that. Somehow, he’ll break it and just stay in place. “

Hammond, 52, told how he thought he was going to die from losing control of his jet-powered car in 2006 after an engine explosion.

He said: “I was upside down and pushed the field. My nose and eyes are full of earth. I plowed the hoe on my head.

“My last thought was, ‘Oh my gosh, that’s wrong. Yes, we are testing right now. You’ve got it ‘. “
