    I thought his identity had been revealed but not officially on the show. Somewhere in this site is a STIG thread.

    My money is on having Anne Widdecombe or a horse in there, just for the laugh. Stig will never go public.

    indeed, it's been known for almost half a year that it's possibly Ben Collins...

    Personally, i would love it if it's Damon Hill. I always had a feeling it could be him. Because when he's around they seem to be so familiar with him...

    yes, he was there because they had the Ferrari FXX there and they just wanted to reveal him as the stig for ratings and so people would stop trying to guess who the actual stig was

    another thing that makes me think it wouldnt be Schumacher is the fact Ferrari are VERY strict about what cars he's allowed to drive and he has a different build to the "proper" stig

    yeah, i think he was there to drive the FXX and it was too good of an oppertunity for them not to pass him off as the stig
