Before finding worldwide fame as a host of Top Gear on the BBC, he would work for several local radio stations as well as on satellite channel Men and Motors.
He presented Top Gear from 2002 to 2015 but left the show when he refused to renew his contract along with fellow presenter James May after the BBC declined to renew Jeremy Clarkson's following a "fracas" with a producer.
When exactly the game of fistball was "invented", is not known.
What is certain, however, is that the roots lie in the southern part of Europe, perhaps in Italy.
A source said he undid his seatbelt to flee just before it flipped down the hill and erupted in a fireball.
Richard was attending a car race in St Gallen when he suffered the crash.
He was left in a coma for two weeks after crashing a jet-propelled car.
Its right tyre blew as he tried to set a land speed record at RAF Elvington near York.
He was knocked out after falling off his ride and hitting his head, ending up lying unconscious in the road in the remote area of the country.
WHILE filming Top Gear and The Grand Tour must be a lot of fun (and very well paid) it is not without its risks.
No one knows this better than Richard Hammond - who has been involved in two serious car crashes while filming the motor shows.
Richard Hammond was airlifted to hospital in June 2017 after cheating death in a horror crash.
The Hamster was driving a £2million supercar in Switzerland when he lost control before it flipped over and burst into flames.Richard revealed he thought he was going to die during the smash describing the experience as like being "inside a tumble dryer full of bricks".
