He's known as the Hamster, but perhaps Richard Hammond would prefer a nickname not based on a small animal that many find cute. It seems Hammond, who makes up one third of the Top Gear UK presenters trio, is a bit miffed at the way his character has shaken out. While Clarkson and May have been allowed to form defined personas, UK's celebrity dish Daily Star reports that Hammond feels he is simply being pigeonholed as the cute little guy who had a big crash.

Show insiders have reportedly stated that Hammond will get the bigger, more defined role that he deserves. They understand how important he is to the show, and plan on making sure that Hammond is happy.
