Default re: Richard Hammond crashes the Rimac Concept One electric supercar

He just had a knee fracture. Here is James May implying that Hammond is an idiot.

Dang... he was just going way too fast and that too on a completely wrong line (due to the speed through the earlier corner).

Must be a painful one for Rimac!!

Catching up on the episodes on Amazon Prime and I have to agree. Just watched Episode 6 with the Mustang and it is easily on par with the good old Top Gear in terms of entertainment, production standards etc. James' story on the Ford vs Ferrari LeMans fight was a masterpiece.

There goes again Hammond on crashing around. Horrible crash, but also shows safety quality of the car, that he is still kicking.
Just OT, so who pays up for the crashed car, I mean they must have insurance for the car, but it will be on Rimac or Amazon.

Eagerly waiting for season 2. I hope they cover the crash in the last episode like they had covered Hammond's drifting mishap in season one.

I'm hoping it doesn't get to a point where Amazon realises that due to the additional publicity, it actually makes business sense to crash a super-exotic every once in a while

On a second thought, it is not bad at all to have a show on crashes. I mean, they can have a show on crashes with focus on safety feature of a car and how they do their job on the event.

I know it more like a NGC documentary than a car show.

Well, this explains a lot. Richard Hammond and the Founder of Rimac discussing the crash! It's a great video explaining, what exactly went wrong! Notice the calmness of the Rimac founder when he says it's a rare car and now only 7 remain.

A couple of days fter Jeremy Clarkson posted an instagram pic of his hand full of IV needles, James may tweeted this today morning. Not sure what to make of this.

Hope its not true ?

I think he was referring to this incident.
