Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond will depart from The Grand Tour after the release of their final special next year.
Why it matters
The departure of the trio marks the end of an era for the motoring show and raises questions about the future of the series.
What the papers say
The Independent reports on Clarkson's update on his other Amazon Prime Video venture, Clarkson's Farm, while The Times provides insight into the trio's decision to leave the series. BBC News discusses the trio's last episode and the exploration of new options for the show's future.
How we got here
The trio hosted the BBC's Top Gear show from 2002 to 2015 before moving to Prime Video in 2016 to film The Grand Tour. The recent announcement follows the news that Top Gear will not return for the foreseeable future after presenter Andrew 'Freddie' Flintoff was hurt in a crash while filming last year.
