Captain Slow is not the Stig... He is the worst driver/presenter that Tops Gear has.

I wouldn't say worst, but different, yes. Both Clarkson and Hammond sound like teenage boys in the schoolyard, whereas May is the old man sitting in the park bench trying to read a Hemmingway. It's an odd mix but it's somehow worked.

It looks amazing in that video. I can't wait for the full top gear video review! Although they probably won't like it because it'll be to "sane" just like with the Aventador.

SO glad he's not!!

JC's hilarious, but his reviews are nearly useless...

car smoke tire good

car no drift no smoke tire bad

That's why he loves "mercs"... all torque no precision

I already know it smokes tires, May might actually tell us something we don't already know.

Maybe he was chosen to do it because this M5 was aimed to be more comfortable and sensible for everyday driving,, he shud be the hardest critic on this subject..
I would love it though if JC did the part for the tv series..
