& # 39; The BBC believes that having a British trio, two Lancashire boys, and a car enthusiast is a good move.

& Paddy and Fred are also crazy about cars. Paddy's phrases and Fred's sense of adventure should bring back the old days of Top Gear.

MailOnline has communicated with the representatives of Top Gear, Paddy and Freddie to make comments.

Matt, who joined the BBC Two motoring program in 2016, announced that he would leave the program in May due to the demands of the role and how much it keeps him away from his family and friends.

He signed a two-year contract for £ 2 million after the departure of Jeremy Clarkson.

In a statement from the BBC studios, LeBlanc said that his "Top Gear experience has been very fun" and that "he has enjoyed working with the entire team."

He added: "However, the commitment of time and the extensive travel required to present Top Gear takes me away from my family and friends more than I feel comfortable with.

"It's unfortunate, but for these reasons I will not continue my participation in the program."

The American Matt LeBlanc was a surprise addition to the presentation of Top Gear along with Chris Evans two years ago, after the departure of Clarkson, Hammond and May.

He then continued to present the program after Evans threw in the towel after just one series.

Evans said at the time that LeBlanc was the "captain" and supported him to stay on the show, and the audience praised his efforts when he returned without the DJ from BBC Radio 2.
