Jeremy Clarkson doesn’t think things are going to end well with the BBC.

The famous TV presenter was speaking at a charity event in London, where he was auctioning off a lap of the Top Gear test track with himself behind the wheel. “I’ll do one last lap, before the fucking bastards sack me,” said Clarkson. “The BBC has fucked themselves.
