It’s up there with “Luke, I’m your father” and Bruce Willis being dead all along as one of the most important revelations of our time.

Finally, after years of speculation, the identity of Top Gear‘s test drive mystery man ‘The Stig’ has been unveiled as none other than Formula One legend Michael Schumacher.

The identity of the white-clad driver has always 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 on Sunday night.

Initially lanky big mouth presenter Jeremy Clarkson pretended not to recognise the driver, asking him what he used to do before he became famous as the Stig, but with typical Clarkson restraint he was soon screaming “It’s Michael Schumacher!”

Of course, being at the very cutting edge of all things TV, we at OTB knew all along. We’re just happy the secret is finally out.
