The first thing we all thought once we heard of Richard Hammond’s crash in the all-electric Rimac Concept One hyper car was his head. After his rocket car accident, he suffered a major head injury and temporary memory loss. Another hit like that and who knows what could happen.
Thankfully, he didn’t break himself in the Rimac, minus his knee, but Jeremy Clarkson has admitted that his is co-star has a “memory like a sieve”.
“You can tell him something and five seconds later it is gone out of his head.
“Well, it is not his fault, it is because he cannot drive and he went upside down and damaged his brain.
“He has no capacity for remembering anything and some of it is because he is not interested in anything and some of it is because he has had brain damage.”
After his 288mph crash 11 years ago it was reported that he had only suffered temporary memory loss, as well as also now liking the taste of celery.
This latest information is news to us all, but it sounds like it’s not affecting his day to say life.
All we can say is that we hope he’s okay and maybe he should take it easy on the stunts from now on?
Let us know what you think!
