The crash

Top Gear presenter Richard Hammond has talked viewers through the 300mph crash which left him badly injured.

He has returned to the programme after an amazing recovery. His comeback show included dramatic footage of the moment a tyre burst on his jet-powered car.

He talked through the crash with his co-stars Jeremy Clarkson and James May, explaining that the car was still going 230mph when it rolled over.

Hammond told viewers he was feeling good, saying: "I am completely fixed."

The 36-year-old was filming a stunt for the programme when the accident happened at a York airfield in September.

The tyre burst, causing the car to skid and flip over.

The new series of Top Gear will feature 35 stunts including the launch of a home-made space shuttle.
