    Did anyone watch this last night?

    Michael Schumacher was revealed to be the stig, but does anyone think that Shumacher was just there because he was the only person allowed to drive the £1000000 800bhp Ferrari around the track and that he isn't actually the stig.

    Shumacher is the official test driver and advisor to Ferrari so would he really have time to drive a car one day a week around an air field in England? Me thinks not.

    It's all over the web, no he is not the stig, the stig is a variety of test drivers, there is one guy that does it 90% of the time, forget his name at the moment.

    Yeah got it in one I suspect GBL, there is no way anybody who hadnt paid their £1,000,000 would be trusted in that car except for Schumacher because of his role at Ferrari, fair play to him though, i'd imagine he had a few practice laps off camera prior to that one but he absolutely stormed it round that track

    Shame they didn't get him to do a proper lap in the Liani and put it on the F1 drivers list. The footage of him cocking it up was funny though. :)

    I don't see how the FXX made the top spot when other cars have hit the top spot and been removed for not being a proper road car...

    I wonder if this season they will show the new fastest car in the world, the SCC Ultimate Aero?

    AFAIK the car has to be road legal to go on the power lap board, and slicks aren't ...
