Richard Hammond has told how his high-speed crash at a hillclimb in Switzerland was very nearly avoided.

In a sit-down interview with Mate Rimac, CEO of the company that produces the Rimac Concept One electric supercar Hammond was driving, the Grand Tour presenter said he and co-presenter James May were ready to finish the day's filming when their director asked for one more run.
