FILE - This is a Jan. 26, 2011 file photo of Top Gear presenters Richard Hammond, left,  James May, centre,  and Jeremy Clarkson. The BBC  apologized Friday Feb. 4, 2011 to Mexico's ambassador for remarks on its "Top Gear" program that described Mexicans as lazy and oafish. The remarks came in a segment in which presenter Richard Hammond claimed that cars imitate national characteristics. "Mexican cars are just going to be a lazy, feckless, flatulent, oaf with a mustache leaning against a fence asleep looking at a cactus with a blanket with a hole in the middle on as a coat," he said. Presenter James May mocked Mexican food, while Jeremy Clarkson suggested the ambassador would be too busy sleeping to register his outrage.
