“She was a force of nature. She was empowering, she was amazing fun. Just a force of energy.
“And we’ll miss her terribly as well as the motoring world. I think she was – the word is overused – but she was iconic. If you said, ‘Woman that drives a car fast’ most people would go, ‘That one from Top Gear that drove the transit van, Sabine.'”
Sabine revealed in July 2020 that she’d been suffering from “an extremely persistent cancer” since late 2017.
Her tragic death has prompted many of her fans and former Top Gear co-stars to pay heartfelt tributes to her lately, including Jeremy Clarkson, who said she was “such a sunny person” in a moving tweet earlier this week.
