Unfortunately, it is getting worse. The hospital now claims that the Hamster now has significant brain injury. Lets all hope and pray that he recovers soon.
Read the update here.

Seems like Richard has made some more progress. James had visited him & had a positive response from Hammond, seems like he was also talking to him for a while.

James May wrote:

"He tried to sit up when I came in and he gave me a sort of grin, which I have to say was a very uplifting moment for me," he said. "I had a bit of an unmanly moment at that point.

"I was chuffed to see him and although he's muttering, he seems much like the irritating little **** I know and love. Even when he can't say much, he seemed to make as much sense as he does when he can talk normally."

More Details here:

Let's hope he pulls through & makes a complete recovery. My best wishes to him & his family in these difficult times.

He is out of the Intensive car unit and did call Clarkson, "a crap driver" when Clarkson was with him - according to BBC.CO.UK

Thats good news!

Here's the latest update from Clarkson himself.

http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,2-2006440317,00.html

Seems like Hamster got up & walked to the loo & later called James "Hello, C0ck face"

It seems our Hamster will be back & will be as funny as always!!

"....The 36-year-old was badly injured on Wednesday (September 20) when he crashed a jet-powered dragster as he accelerated towards 480km/h in a feature being filmed for the show..."

480km/h? ughh...Crazy...don't they have commonsense? I dont ever remember even F1, someone tried this speed! Lesson Learnt : Do not take things for granted....too much.
