Guess who was in that jeep with him? Hormazd Sorabjee.

Default Holy Cow! Michael Shumacher is "The Stig"

so, claims this news.

BBC's mystery driver in Top Gear revealed

so can it be possible that the person who has his genitals hanging upside down is the god of racing - Michael Shumacher.

Yeah, I just now read that on Reuters as well.

In an episode broadcast on Sunday, the current Stig took off his white helmet to loud cheers from the studio audience, revealing himself to be Schumacher, Formula One's most successful driver and seven times world champion.

And the true identity of The Stig is . . . . Michael Schumacher

more evidence about MS being the stig. But speculations still on.

Frankly, i dont believe it.

You mean to say that Schumacher actually drove the Renault F1 race car that nuked Ferrari the previous season?



And rem when Hamilton posted a 1"44 in the wet. JC said "Everyone including the Stig wants to know, how you did it?" So even after 7 world championships, MS doesn't know how its done? No way!!!

For all you know, they would have invited him specially for this episode.

Shan2nu - There's always been speculation that there's more than one Stig and thats probably it. No way would Ferrari let MS drive the Renault F1 car and as for the Stig asking how Hamilton drove so fast around the track - its a TV show

Top gear will never let people know the truth behind the Stig, i guess we'll be guessing for ever

Its not about the show. What i meant to say is that if MS was the real Stig, either JC would never have mentioned it, or TG would never have revealed his identity.

This is like openly saying that MS has a lot to learn from Hamilton (who had just entered F1).

And what about this?



Schumi seems to have put on 15 kilos of fat for the winter and prob had a death wish. Haha

Shan2nu - True True. I guess the only other reasoning, is that there is more than one stig. A stig the suites the application?

Not just application wrt types of vehicles, even when they test various supercars, im sure some of the manufacturers must have insisted that their test driver wears the Stig's suite for the shoot/run.

That was the whole point behind having an unidentified driver.
