New "Top Gear" host Chris Evans recently showed signs of experiencing car sickness while filming a segment of the BBC show in California.

Photos of the British celebrity bent over the side the the road next to an Audi R8 V10 vehicle, in which he was filming with new co-host Sabine Schmitz, were published in various U.K. tabloids over the weekend.

Several reports say the 49-year-old host was seen throwing up after exiting the car, which was filming on a Monterey, Calif. racetrack.

"It would be unfair to expect him to be perfect right from the word 'go,'" a source said to The Sun. "But how can someone who gets car sick possibly host 'Top Gear?'"

The statement echoes the sentiments of many fans on social media, some of whom have criticized Evans since he was named former host Jeremy Clarkson's replacement for the hit BBC show last year.
