Jeremy Clarkson has blasted the BBC for being obsessed with racial equality.
The controversial Top Gear host said he is fed up with being asked why the motoring show doesn't have a female presenter.
He also stated that the TV corporation is mystified as to why their three-male hosting format works well.
He said: "The problem is that television executives have got it into their heads that if one presenter on a show is a blond-haired, blue-eyed heterosexual boy, the other must be a black Muslim woman. Chalk and cheese, they reckon, works.
"But here we have Top Gear setting new records after six years using cheese and cheese. It confuses them."
Despite his outspoken views, Jeremy admits he thinks women would be better Grand Prix drivers than men.
He said: "History dictates that women are not capable of racing an F1 car. But history is wrong.
"Women can fly airliners and they could fly fighter jets too, if they didn't have wombs which tend to come off during G-turns - I'm not making that up.
"What's more, women can multitask. And it's why I'd be hopeless."
Praising the driving abilities of Vicky Butler Henderson, presenter of Five's rival show Fifth Gear, he said: "Last month, I got to know her as a driver. Jesus, she's good."
