Just a lone Stig sits atop the newly edited Top Gear website where once he was flanked by Richard Hammond, James May, and Jeremy Clarkson, indicating that the reports of the co-presenters refusing to continue the show without Clarkson were well founded. We’re not sure if The Stig misses his colleagues; some say he did shed a single tear when Clarkson’s firing was made official, but that it turned into vapour immediately after making contact with his skin. In case you were wondering, here's how the Top Gear site looked back in January 2015:
Jeremy Clarkson’s altercation with one of the show’s producers upon returning to a Yorkshire hotel after a day’s filming had wrapped has led to the presenter’s suspension and eventual sacking by the BBC. There has been word spreading around of offers to create a Top Gear 'sequel', with Netflix, ITV in early talks with Clarkson, Hammond, and May. Even hearsay about the trio taking over Top Gear US. All maybes at this point.
With each piece of sad news about (arguably) the world’s favourite motoring show, fans everywhere wince and sigh and just end up binge watching previous episodes. Well, at least one fan does.
