Got up this morning at 8:30 and first thing i did was i started downloading the Video. I guess it must have been compleated by now, So i guess its time to go home NOW.

The Season details looks promising, The Stig Revealed, Race in a 60 year old Transport more., and what not.

I think Michael Schumacher is being shown as the Stig, just to rest the rumors that are floating around regarding Stig's identity.

I highly doubt, Michael moon-lighting as the Sting since last 4-5 years especially while he was still active in F1 and winning championships.

Guys, watch the full episode, In the end when they put Schumi aka the STIG in the old reasonably priced car, He looses his way on the track no to mention his inability to engage a manual gear box, So they conclude that Schumi is not the STIG.

Its just a publicity stunt, The STIG is still un-known.

The Schumi = Stig was just a cover for the FXX.

Ferrari wouldn't give Top Gear an Enzo to test. So they had to get a rock star to lend one. Ferrari would obviously not give them an FXX. Schumacher would have one. So they bring him on with the whole Stig shenanigans and end up having a new lap record holder.

Ben Collins is probably the Stig.

Yup, but the FXX Lap was killer, It sounded heaven. Schumi I guess drives the only all black FXX, rest have a White stripe.

Schumacher's line around the first corner was different to the Stig's. The Stig has said that all F1 drivers go wide at the first corner, which Schumacher also did.

Hilarious episode! Thank god His Holiness isnt The Red Baron. Many drivers have been used as the Stig, they will never reveal all the many identities...
