Michael Schumacher is The Stig, or maybe not
One of the biggest unknowns for all motor racing fans and the British program Top Gear is the identity of its pilot performing careers, better known as The Stig. So the program led by Jeremy Clarkson wanted to start this new season trying this recurring theme.
There have been many rumors about who is behind the white helmet including Lewis Hamilton, Damon Hill and many others were. The answer came in the episode aired on Sunday, in which after bursting into the set, Jeremy announced that The Stig had agreed to reveal his identity.
Eventually, a familiar face was exposed for all the seven titles Champion Formula 1 Michael Schumacher. The audience did not leave his astonishment, they had just witnessed as the Gumpert Apollo lost the head of the classification of fastest laps and now could see the face of the mystic Stig.
But like anything that seems too good to be true, this was not to be outdone and again with his quirky humor British We have sneaked one of his pranks. we are presented with a return of Schumacher at the end of the program, aboard the Suzuki Liana wearing white uniform, just when starting your car back bay, few meters after having trouble changing gears and other his fast lap is a real nonsense.
The conclusion is provided by the Clarkson himself suggesting that Seven-times is not The Stig and they would have taken advantage of their presence to the Ferrari FXX to spend this joke. Although this is not the first joke of this kind that we spend from the always great Top Gear, certainly it will not be the last either.
At the end of the day, little given the identity or identities of Stig because it is nothing more than a monkey with white racing helmet game that gets bring a car to its limit during that lap.
