The Stig has been revealed! It is none other than Formula One world champ seven times over, Michael Schumacher. Read more about the reveal plus see pictures and video below.
The Stig is Michael Schumacher. Could he really be the Stig or is this just a big joke? At the end of the premiere episode of Top Gear Sunday, Schumacher took off the famous white helmet while being interviewed by host Jeremy Clarkson and revealed himself as The Stig.
Top Gear, which has a cult following, features the Stig test driving and posting lap times in several different vehicles, wearing the infamous white jumpsuit and white crash helmet.
It has widely been rumored that the Stig is actually Ben Collins, an ex-stunt driver who has been a double for Daniel Craig in the James Bond flick, Quantum of Solace. There is speculation that the Stig reveal is really a publicity stunt for Michael Schumacher on behalf of Bacardi. Schumacher joined forces with Bacardi in January 2008 as their Global Social Responsibility Ambassador.
