Top Gear Spoiler Alert!


And The Stig is...

...none other than Formula One legend Michael Schumacher.

Schumacher appeared on Top Gear in the UK on Sunday where he was unveiled as "the Stig", the mystery man who test drives cars on the cult TV show.

The identity of the white-clad driver has been kept a closely guarded secret, but Schumacher, who was Formula One world drivers' champion seven times, finally revealed himself in the first of a new series of the show.

Presenter Jeremy Clarkson pretended not to recognise him at first, asking him what he used to do before he became famous as the Stig, but then excitedly shouted to the studio audience: "It's Michael Schumacher!"

Former Formula One driver Perry McCarthy was Top Gear's original Stig, who dressed all in black during the first two series.
