I think he would be, there isn't another front man required. There are still 5 of them. Leave it at that.

Perhaps time to 'rest' Top Gear for a year and come up with something new, like they did between 2001 - 2002?

the 'they' before was Clarkson and Wilman.

BBC had nothing to do with it.

Quite a tough one, someone with some driving skills, some charisma and some presenting talent...

I'll suggest Jenson Button... or Martin Brundle. Or, I know, what about that other guy,.. Jeremy Clarkson? :blackeye
Nobody. There were already too many presenters. Let Rory take the reins, with Chris Harris and LeBlanc there too. Dump the rest. Job done.
Works for me !

I'd also prefer it if there was at least one remotely affordable car in every episode, rather than everything at 100k plus and in some case cars you can't buy even if you had millions in the bank (like the incredibly pointless Aston Vulcan ,soon to be followed by the even more pointless Aston Red Bull).

I don't watch TG for hatchback/runaround reviews. Go test drive them yourself. I like seeing cars I will never be able to afford being driven hard.

Ross didn't say they did!

Whatever, the Beeb will be watching The Grand Tour with forensic concentration. If they have any sense...
