The Stig revealed! (Top Gear) - June 24th 2009, 11:36 AM

Michael Schumacher is the Stig!































... Fooled you!

:]

It was revealed that he was, but apparently it was all a publicity stunt. Up to 6 people drive as the Stig, according to some sources.

What do you guys think?


Because in the end, it doesn't even matter.

I believe it probably is a few different people doing it instead of just one person because they never speak and you never see their face so how do we know it's the same person every episode?

They were using his FXX and he was in the country as an advisor and test driver for Ferrari F1, the papers have been going made about who the stig is, so it made sense to have some fun with it.

It also said at the end Special guest : Micheal Shumacher, not Micheal Shumacher as The Stig.

I do think there a multiple people but I do believe the rumours that one is Ben Collins.

I heard that Michael Schumacher was only The Stig because he was the only one insured to drive a certain car or something as the car was so expensive so he could have just been on for a couple of episodes or something.

I reckon publicity stunt.
Last time the Stig was revealed he had to leave ... so we'll soon see.

Yup it was his Ferrari FXX and he was the only person who could drive it and they thought they could have some fun.

I have heard rumours it's mulitple people- when they did an episode in Finland, apparently Heikki Kovalianen did it.

It doesn't matter too much though, it's all good fun either way.

Lol that's a lot of the fun of Top Gear "who's the stig"
and "the stigs american cousin" "the stigs african cousin" etc
I think he probably did drive as the stig at some point but I agree that it probably is multiple people.
I also heard a rumour that it was James May aka Captain Slow/ Captain Sense of Direction

..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

Publicity stunt fo sureee.
Must be multiple people - they would each have different strengths in driving so it would make the stig seem extra amazing
I love the stig. I love top gear.
