Those who can watch it, tune in to Top Gear this Sunday at 8pm on BBC2 to watch the (very good) Evora review! I was there for the filming yesterday, it was lots of fun and there's a HUGE surprise in the show!
So there!According to an audience member at the first episode of Top Gear Season 13, the Stig was revealed to be none other than a Ferrari FXX-driving Michael Schumacher!
I was at the top gear recording earlier on today for the first episode of the new series, and the Stig was revealed to be... Michael Schumacher!! this was very unexpected, but totally believable in the end. His full unmasking will be shown on BBC 1 on saturday at 9pm in the UK! attached are a few shots of his FXX which he was putting around the track. The rest of the episode is a interview with schumacher, a hot lap in the lliana and a race between a steam engine, a bike and a 1940's jaguar.
Agreed. I haven't seen the episode but I would have to think that it was a one time gag to reveal The Stig to be Schumacher. He was "The Stig" for that episode but can't see how (or why) he would have been schlepping back and forth to England in the middle of F1 season to test drive cars on that show especially where his identity is never shown.I always thought the Stig was Dr. Jonathan Palmer, a British ex-F1 driver. Just a guess on my part, but I would think that the irregular shooting schedule of Top Gear would preclude Schumacher from doing all that traveling and it would've been more convenient to get a Brit.
The new season will air in the US when the UK gets its next new season...ie next year. BBC America is always one season behind.When does the new season air in the US ???
I always assumed the “Stig” was not one driver, but 2 or 3 to handle scheduling issues etc.
If it is Michael - that would be Very Cool Indeed
great show.One of the guys I met there had waited 6 years for tickets, it's a popular show with 350 million worldwide viewers!
Groan - that's a long wait
