Didn't (and still don't) believe that Schumacher has been the Stig for this long, but a pleasant surprise nonetheless. Was that his FXX given to him by Ferrari?
Entertaining race and seeing Jeremy in the steam train was fun. I can't imagine the physical strain and stress shoveling that coal into the fire to keep the train going as fast as it was. Also, if it is definitely hand-made, what amazing quality and construction of the parts. The people who built it definitely weren't in it for the cash but to build a once magnificent machine.
Only bad part for me was the news; wasn't really entertaining and made me cringe a few times...
Schumi isn't the Stig, or he's not the only Stig. There's a video up on youtube of a dutch(IIRC) TV show or something asking him some questions, obviously with the helmet on. He has a completely different accent, and obviously British one at that. Also, I'm pretty sure Schumacher has better things to do than moonlight as the Stig every week. I still maintain that the Stig is Ben Collins.
Yes, agreed that the Stig may have been other people before Schumaker. It does make sense that he could be the Stig at this point though, since Top Gear truly has a fair deal of international cachet and I can see how Clarkson could persuade him to take the gig.
The bit at the end with the Liana really felt tacked on, just to make people still wonder, and I really feel like the entire rest of the episode suggests this was a true reveal and that Schumaker IS the Stig, or at least has been recently. I would not take that end bit seriously, it clearly is not intended as such.
