Argh, I'm pulling for him since hearing the news yesterday. 😞 I'm a huge fan of the show to say the least.

I'm praying for Richard to make a full recovery. I first heard the news last night and I was dreading listening to the news this morning. He's a really nice guy and makes Top Gear a must watch for me every Sunday with his humerous comments and mild insults directed at Jeremy Clarkson. I'm not a huge car buff but I do like to drool over some of the machines they have on the show and allocate any lottery winnings that might come my way. As Jeremy Clarkson said earlier today at the hospital speaking on behalf of Top Gear they just want their 'hamster' back.

Doctors said his condition had changed from "serious but stable" to "stable".

Hamster is a legend, and I wish his family and himself all the best, it is more than reassuring to hear he has been able to walk around the ward and eat bowls of cereal.

A website called pistonheads.com set up a fund for the helicopter that transported hammond from the accident site.

Their original target was 500 quid. They are currently at:

67,270.50!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They have to keep razing their targets because they are just totally BLITZING them.

Gave me faith in the british people tbh, considering all the chavs on tele and stuff.

i don't like the guy but i don't want him to die or anything. Ever since he wrote a nasty column in the newspaper about single mothers i have hated him. I am being brought up by a single mother and there is nothing wrong with me. He said they werent responsible. So, responsibility is driving a jet powered car is it?
Hope he gets better, wouldn't wish that on any one.
