Why is Hammond on Top Gear?
He drives the formula across, I wouldn't be surprised if he writes the script so to speak and tries to direct the conversation with Jezza to piss off May. It works in spite of or perhaps because Hammond is so Weathermanly. May believes in being genuine even if gloomy, the others are natural performers because the short one has to be but the tall one absolutely loves it.
