Top Gear reveals the Stig as – Michael Schumacher!Fri, 19 Jun 2009
Michael Schumacher is the Stig!
And they’ve excelled themselves this time. During the time Top Gear has been off-air, we’ve had ‘Jeremy Clarkson to be replaced by a Woman‘ and ‘Top Gear Budget Slashed‘ as headlines to keep up the interest. We’ve also run a piece on Top Gear in UAE with Supercars. But today’s is great. The Stig is Michael Schumacher!
The story seems to have started on Jalopnik, which reports an audience member at the recording of this week’s show saying:
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 Sunday at 9pm in the UK!
But it seems much more likely that the TG team have planted this, or it’s just someone playing silly buggers. If there is truth to this it will no doubt revolve around Schumacher being a guest and persuaded to ‘Play Stig’ for the day.
But it’s got the hype going for the new show!
