I think if they kick Clarkson off he isn't going to be welcome as a gues host either.

the show had to end eventually, for which this would be a good a reason as any.

the hosts are loaded for life.

in my opinion, the show peaked around the vietnam special / argentina special years. after that, the show has really lost a lot of its originality.

Old news. Apparently they will announce their decision tomorrow (Wednesday UK time).

He's the dominant personality of the three. I can't see him being fired. But the show has to change limiting his involvement. An additional presenter perhaps.....

The best part of that is a hint they may move Top Gear to Netflix. That would be spectacular!

the BBC a will struggle to monetize it without him and will end up selling a husk of a brand back to him for pennies ... He'll then own it all for next to nothing and be able to really monetize it. So from his perspective it will work out rather nicely.

Doubly so if you work for a State Owned Entity. Problem is that the media would have a field day if they reinstated Clarkson going on and on about the BBC/UK Gov being lax towards violence in the workplace. He's gone.

The three of them will simply start the same show on another network and supply someone else with the millions in profits.

Howard Stern redux

I think it's the perfect play to develop this into a complete Top Gear network. Something like Velocity but edgy instead of old man buick collector centric.

Eventually but what makes you think the BBC will immediately let Hammond and May out of their contracts too. It looks like the rozzers also want to get involved in the assault investigation. Clarksons trouble may continue beyond the firing.

All of their contracts end at the end of March.

Something weird is happening in the UK. I've just been informed that One Direction has just become 4/5 Direction. At least one good thing today in my opinion.

Nevertheless, I really wanted to see the British vs. JDM episode (one of the final two episodes). Also, the what will happen now to the Porsche 918 vs. McLaren P1 vs. Ferrari LaFerrari special....
