In last night’s Top Gear, Chris Harris was lucky enough to review the incredible Ferrari SF90 in front of the camera. The 986 horsepower hybrid Italian supercar is the fastest road-legal Ferrari to escape Maranello, and of course, Chris Harris was one of the first to get behind the wheel for the popular BBC car show. But, sandwiched between two halves of a film where Harris, Freddy Flintoff, and Paddy McGuinness, spend 24 hours in three business class cars, the review got lost.
Unfortunately, it was short and, compared to the usual reviews that we love from Harris, it lacked information and humour. It felt a little half baked. And this show being Top Gear post-Clarkson-era, people were quick to complain about this. But Harris was quick to retaliate with a post on Twitter, defending his actions.
I just don’t know what to do with 1000hp. Believe me, I fucking wish I did know what to do with it because I love horsepower, but it’s all pointless. Off to clear head.

“I just don’t know what to do with 1000hp. Believe me, I fucking wish I did know what to do with it because I love horsepower, but it’s all pointless. Off to clear head,” he said, obviously feeling the pressure of the complaints.
Harris is an experienced racing driver and an even more experienced car reviewer with experience behind the desks of many major car magazines such as EVO. Over time, as an avid reader of his content, I’ve learnt that if he has little to say about a car, that’s because the car gives little away.
