Now that Top Gear is (sort of) over the Argentina incident, some of you may be wondering if the scandal, which may be considered as a peak for all the other Top Gear / Jeremy Clarkson controversies that happened over the past year, has determined the show to be any more cautious. Well, we’re not exactly sure, with Clarkson’s latest tweet bringing a rather... hot answer.
Top Gear’s lead singer posted a photo taken from behind the wheel of a BMW M, with a massive fire just in front of the vehicle. By the way, for the uber-curious, this is either an M5 or an M6.

One hour later, Clarkson used his Twitter account again, this time to let everybody know he was enjoying himself. It won’t be long until we get to see what Top Gear is up to next, but when thinking about the at-the-limit stuff, we’re not expecting the crew to give up on this anytime soon.

Top Gear is basically in a controversy vicious circle

As a short reminder, Top Gear used to be a show that presented cars in standard fashion. That recipe worked between 1977 and 2001, but the whole thing was reinvented with the launch of the 2002 season. The focus was switched to the sensational, be it supercars burning rubber or controversial stuff.

We remember when, a few years ago, people started talking about the show collapsing under its own weight. It’s all a vicious circle - Top Gear kept fans on their toes by constantly pushing the controversy limits, while the audience kept asking for more and more.

Nowadays, Clarkson is involved in one scandal after another, with this form of entertainment clearly drawing attention more than anything else Top Gear has done this year. Moreover, we seem to be dealing with some sort of a public conversation between the BBC and Clarkson. The officials keep urging the presenter to keep things tidy. All in all, we feel like we’re watching a “parent vs child” soap opera.
