    It can take a while for a dynamic to work - the presenters will get used to each other and get a rapport going. I'm sure it will improve. I remember when Sue Barker first took over Q of Sport from David Coleman - she was terrible. After a few shows she found her own style.

    I was prepared for the worst. It was pretty good. I think there's a few papers who are out to do a hatchet job on the Beeb (as ever), so even if it was the most amazingly brilliant thing ever on TV, they (and their believers) would still slate it.

    I think it will improve with a few episodes under their belts.

    Just to clarify, Sabine Schmitz presents at least 3 programs on Germany TV; D Motor,Turbo and Test my Ride. Those are the only 3 I've seen but she might do more for all I know...

    Yes, I know. She's not being used as a presenter on the twat's version of Top Gear though, is she...?

    Occasionally watched old Top Gear with son though not really my scene. Watched 15mins of new one just to see what all the fuss was about, like lots of others I suspect. The true viewing figures/success will only be apparent after a few weeks.

    It was more fun to watch the reaction on Twitter when it largely got panned.

    There were a few standing up for it but fell into one or all of the bellow;

    1/ Clarkson hating lefties
    2/ Car haters
    3/ Middle aged women
    4/ People who did not watch old Top Gear

    One of whoem tweeted that it was racist and xenophobic not to like it
