No way he is the stig ! As if the BBC can afford him, and more importantly as if he would want to do it !

He was defo driving that Fezza tho !

Accoreding to this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferrari_FXX

That FXX was his own car - it didnt have a stripe did it ?

Ferrari would not have let them touch it - hence MS on the show. Stig for one night only.
