Jeremy Clarkson, whose Top Gear contract was not renewed after a fracas with a producer last year that involved the lack of hot food after taping, has settled the resulting racial discrimination and injury claim. “I would like to say sorry, once again, to Oisin Tymon for the incident and its regrettable aftermath. I want to reiterate that none of this was in any way his fault,” said Clarkson in a statement. Added the BBC, “Oisin is a valued member of the BBC who behaved with huge integrity in dealing with the very difficult circumstances.” Clarkson and his former Top Gear co-hosts Richard Hammond and James May get a fresh start in a new car series to be released on Amazon later this year.
