No.

With the way it was done, chances are The Stig probably isn't even who it was revealed to be.

Not a bad return.

They should have demanded that Schumacher do a lap in the Suzuki!

How many miles of headlines do you think the "news" section will generate? All the PC doogooder will go completely wobbly. :D

As for the Ferrari FXXXXXXX thingy, very fast, but is it a road car? They disqualified cars before for that.

Seems so.

Well no it isn't is it? Didn't they say it's £1 million for one but they don't deliver it to you. It stays in the Ferrari Garage but you can take it to a track for the day to "borrow it". Sounds ludicrus to me! WHY??

I have to say seeing James May lifting Clarkson off the floor and putting a beer to his lips made me laugh! :lol:
Why yes, I am bored. How could you tell?

I was surprised at how black Clarkson was. When he fell over at the bar, there was a streak of it on the wall.

I'm sure there was a rumour it was Schumacher a while back, so wouldn't surprise me if they were playing on that.

Probably be a running gag now that every week the Stig will reveal himself as a different celeb. Or else every time they're due to have a F1 driver on.

I did notice they were listed separately in the credits. The Stig was along with the presenters and Schumacher was the guest.

If Schumacher was the stig, who was the stig that died on the aircraft carrier :scratch:

Though I think we all seem to have missed the main surprise, Captain Slow came first :lol:

That was the Black Stig (Perry McCarthy) who was offed after revealing who he was in his autobiography.

I think they could swing calling Schui the Stig because like Tenshi said I'll bet he was the only one allowed to drive the FXXXXXXXX. So technically they weren't lying. :roll:

Some moments of their task had me in stitches. Do wonder if May has become a raver now.
Still waiting for them to give up and just have the entire show about them fucking about doing tasks. Maybe for next budget cuts.

The ongoing windscreen wiper gag was a bit obvious though. :roll:

I like the tasks.

As a non driver and not a "petrolhead" (is that the right term?) I don't see the point of a show that just tells you about a cars engine and then shows it driving about very fast with lots of slow mo shots. The tasks are lots of fun. Yes they're predictable but still laughable.

I liked todays episode. Watching Clarkson trying to get up that hill was funny.

I would also like to say as a non "petrolhead" (again if it's the wrong term then tell me) even I felt the anticipation of the race between the Bugatti and the McLaren.

Don't know what term "petrolheads" like. There's also "little boy/girl racers" or I just like to call them "car w*nkers". :P

Yeah right, live firing while he's still in the car :roll:

Good fun, but do they think we're thick or something?

Yeah, it was very contrived. The bit where he stopped to peer over the sand as the Trojan rolled over the mines, then ran off in his car was almost camp!

But a weird episode. I mean that was tough to believe, but the Post being that good? No way.
