Hmmm, he may have done some 'stigging' in the past - but the stig is lots of different people...

I read they changed the stig every year. He is probably just the 'new' one. Did always think he was the stig from day one.

Yep and they've just changed wikipedia to say it is alleged they said he was the stig so they could interview him!

Schumaker isn't the stig, he just owns one of the ferrari ffx's. Letting an owner take one round the track was probably the only way they could actually get to time one.

I doubt he was doing it when he was in F1 - I think his daytime job would have been more important!

I dont think Schuey is the Stig to many contractual obligations with ferrari/fiat plus as was said, Ferrari will only let you drive your own car at the track,probably just a P.R excecise imho.

The original stig (in black racesuit) was Perry Macarthy the ex F1 driver from Billericay in Essex
