Well, they haven't wasted any time in grabbing the music from the new Trek movie for one of the challenges, have they?!

(And there's some Dark Knight music too, which they've used before)

ETA- Jeremy covered in soot looks like Morgan Freeman...


ETA- well, not so much in the second half. Just in that shot before the "to be continued"

Shumacher???

Well, that explains the whole not talking thing then.

I'd have liked it more if he'd taken off his helmet only to show a rubber face of some well-known politician.

He's just an accomplice. The real Stig has taken to hiding in his usual hiding place, or so I've heard.

Schumy? Cute gag. Glad James won a race for a change. Nice to see the boys back.

They're going to wheel out a different Stig every week, aren't they ?

Did Schumacher pose as The Stig or what? I fucking hate the guy, but doing that would make him a lot more likable to me.

Hate the guy? Why? Have you even met him? Is he unsociable, perhaps? Or a jerk? And in what way?

I get so tired of people arbitrarily assigning hate to other people or objects; even though they don't know what the word means.

Meh. He's German, he's arrogant, and he was extremely successul - that's enough for me to not like him.
I'm sure if I ever met him, he would seem like an ok guy, but that's not bloody likely.

All right, that's fair. But do you want to utterly destroy him and make him suffer for that? If not, then you don't hate him; you simply dislike him, as is anybody's perogative.

Anyway, back on track: I loved the race; though it was a bit slim on jokes this time.

Re: Top Gear New Series

It was a gag, though it does make Schumacher officially *a* Stig- they do occasionally have other experts be the Stig for specific events, as well as having a regular Stig.

AIUI Ferrarri sent him with the FXX, cos they wouldn't let anybody else drive it and he was over for today's GP anyway.

Re: Top Gear New Series

I wonder if the daily fail will make a fuss over the news bit.

Re: Top Gear New Series

The White Stig was 'revealed' to be ex-Formula 1 driver Michael Schumacher on the 21st of June 2009 on the first episode of the new series of Top Gear. However at the end of the show this was shown to be an elaborate joke. Schumacher was also credited as the Special Guest of the episode, separately to 'The Stig'.

That was the first thing I thought of as soon as he took the helmet off. I don't think it would work though. Maybe 2 or 3 episodes, but not all 7.
