But is Schu really the Stig?


Michael Schumacher is The Stig.

At least that's according to the latest episode of the BBC's car fanatics favourite, Top Gear.

In a segment of the show, broadcast on Sunday night on BBC Two, a driver put in laps of the Top Gear track in a Ferrari FXX and promptly slashed the previous record, set by a Gumpert Apollo, by almost seven seconds as he crossed the finishing line in 1:10.7.

Introducing the driver, Jeremy Clarkson, one of the show's presenters, said: "Some say that he invented the curtain, and that he recently submitted a £20,000 expenses claim for some gravel for his moat... All we know is: He's called The Stig.

"He's been fed up with newspapers speculating that he's a photocopier salesman from Bolton, or lives in a pebble-dashed house in Bristol."

And with that the helmet was removed...

To reveal Michael Schumacher.

Clarkson, though, later threw doubt on the whether the seven-time F1 Champion really is The Stig, saying: "You know what? I don't think that Michael Schumacher is The Stig."

As for the BBC, an insider told The Mirror that it was "a joke" while a spokesman said: "We never reveal who or what The Stig is."
