Jeremy Clarkson has mocked his 'The Grand Tour' co-presenter Richard Hammond for riding a scooter.

The car-loving presenter shared a picture of a "moron" in front of him driving one of the two-wheeled vehicles and later revealed it was his pal steering the moped.

He shared a picture of the back of the vehicle and tweeted: "What sort of a moron would get about on such a thing?"

He then followed it with an image that revealed Richard was driving and wrote: "Well I overtook IN A CAR and this is the answer.... (sic)"

After a follower told him off for using his phone while driving, he branded the Twitter user a "pillock".

He wrote: "I'm in the passenger seat. So who's the pillock now!"

Richard, 46, was unlikely to be upset by his friend's jibes as he recently spoke of how much he enjoys getting around on two wheels.

He tweeted last month: "Usual ride from home in Herefordshire to work in London this morning. I like biking. A lot. Even after 30yrs of doing it. That is all."

Meanwhile, it has been revealed Jeremy, Richard, and James May's new show 'The Grand Tour' will air for the first time on November 18.

The trio signed a three-year deal with Amazon to make the programme following Jeremy's sacking from 'Top Gear' after punching a producer last year.

Jay Marine, Vice President of Amazon Prime Video EU, said: "Customers have been desperate to find out when they can watch their favourite team back on screen, so we are very excited to announce the launch date of one of the most globally anticipated shows of 2016.

"The guys have been having a blast filming the show around the world and we can't wait for fans to see it weekly from 18th November, only on Amazon Prime Video."

The trio and production team have been filming the show on location across the globe, with parts of 'The Grand Tour' shot in front of an audience inside a giant travelling tent.

They have already filmed with the fans in Johannesburg and later this month, Jeremy, Richard and James, will take the tent to California to shoot parts of the opening episode.

New episodes will be released every Friday on Amazon Prime Video.
