The Stig Revealed As Michael Schumacher On Top GearWritten by Simon Barker on June 22, 2009 · Filed under Funnies, TV/Movies
Top Gear has finally revealed the White Stig’s identity for themselves in the opening show of their new series and who’d have thought it, it was Michael Schumacher all along!…well yeah…maybe!
Here at Zath, we’re big fans of Top Gear as are many of our readers and we’ve long wondered about who is The Stig for over two years now.
Anyway I must admit, it was a very good piece of television when they made that unmasking and it turned out to be former-F1 champion, Michael Schumacher – clearly they had to do something after the Stig was revealed as being Ben Collins back in January 2009, so rather than simply ignore it and everyone talk about his identity for ever more, give the public what they wanted…well in a manner of speaking at least!
Watching the unveiling and the subsequent interview was admittedly very entertaining and I especially liked Clarkson touching on the subject of winning at all costs and driving into Damon Hill to win his first title – he seemed to take it in good humour!
So it would certainly appear at this moment in time that the Black Stig won’t be returning afterall, clearly this return had not been an official publicity stunt – but funny to watch all the same!
