Richard Hammond's quotes

  • Now, personally, I like a car with some sort of character.
  • No action hero is more closely associated with cars than James Bond.
  • And I like pygmy goats, because they're just lovely, and ducks.
  • I like to think that my arrogance, impetuosity, impatience, selfishness and greed are the qualities that make me the loveable chap I am.
  • The easiest and simplest thing that any one can do to make their car safer, more gas efficient, whatever - check the tire pressure.
  • For somebody who has injured their brain, every single thing they say and think will be the subject of their own questioning.
  • I damaged all the complicated bits of the brain to do with processing and emotional control. I was prey to every single emotion that swept over me and I couldn't deal with it. I had to re-learn things from scratch.
  • At home I drive an old Land Rover.
  • I've been in a car three or four times when it filled with water and it's not a comfortable feeling.
  • Forty is brilliant and I love it. I'm happier now than when I was 20.
  • I'm a presenter.
  • If I can be cruel; I'm not a big fan of the Audi R8, actually.
  • I mostly drive around in a Fiat 500 TwinAir, and that's a pretty small car!
  • My grandfather on one side was trained as a cabinetmaker but eventually worked as a coachbuilder and then built cars. I inherited from him a love of cars, but with no technical ability whatsoever, sadly!
  • I'm not reckless. I was never reckless.
  • I would love to act. I probably won't make it to Hollywood at 42 years of age, but I'd love to act.
  • I run a lot. I have this five-mile run that I try and do a few times a week. If I do more, I get shin splints and it drives me mad, so I have to balance it.
  • With the case of running, it really is a case of get out, set yourself a distance, run it, and then do it again the next day. It's tremendously simple.
  • I had post-traumatic amnesia, five-second memory, it happens as a result of brain injury.
  • I think a basic level of fitness can help the body cope with all manner of incidents.
  • My first car was a 1976 Toyota Corolla Liftback in red, like the one in 'The Blues Brothers.' I painted a Union Jack on the roof. I was absolutely in love with it until I destroyed it, which broke my heart!
  • I don't particularly want to smear myself into a hillside.
  • Failing my driving test first time; that was a disappointment on a geological scale.
