BBC show “Top Gear” is kicking off its 21st season with a familiar face — “Downton Abbey” star Hugh Bonneville. Check out this behind-the-scenes video of Bonneville, taking part in the on-going feature “Star in a Reasonably-Priced Car.”

“I’m fairly cautious, I’m not very adventurous and I’m rubbish at parking,” says Bonneville, “so luckily there isn’t a parking segment to this program.”

During his run, racing around an airfield, Bonneville laughs about how hot he’s getting in the car — “I’m working a real fug up” — and later, he says his hips are in “agony” but that he got “the Benedict Cumberbatch bug” at the end, wanting to drive as fast as he possibly could.

“Top Gear” premieres on BBC America at 8:30 p.m.ET/PT Monday, Feb. 10.
