So, Is Michael Schumacher The Stig?

Illustration for article titled So, Is Michael Schumacher The Stig?

Our exclusive report claiming Michael Schumacher is The Stig has generated quite the controversy this morning. So much in fact that we decided to call up our contacts at the BBC for a comment. So, is it true?


UPDATE: Video of The Stig, unmasked!

We spoke with both PR and production contacts at the BBC, and neither were willing to confirm or deny our report. However, what our production contact was willing to say was if you get the Beeb, you'll want to tune in to the June 21st show to find out. So while we stand by our initial report, we won't know if it's true or not until we get a chance to download hear reports out of the UK as soon as the show airs. But we're more interested in what you think. Is Schumi our beloved Stiggie?

Theory de Superfast: This "one audience member" is part of the Top Gear marketing team, and is just generating publicity. On the show they'll make some joke about an internet leak of the Stigs identity, and show Shumi and Stig racing against each other.

Man, that's going to be a good race.
