Top Gear Season Starts: Twitter Inundated With Stig Comments

As a big number of you are aware, online social networking site Twitter is growing by the day and attracts everybody from Joe Bloggs right through to the celebrity. Every day we hear news of a public figure that has taken to the site, whether its a TV or movie star, a name from the music world or even a sportsman or woman. Today its the turn of award winning British TV series “Top Gear” and racing driver “The Stig.”

Following on from last night’s programme that has started off the last series, followers of the programme in their droves took to Twitter and tweeted their thoughts on the new Stig and his/her identity. Many according to Metro, are convinced that the new white suited helmet wearing person is that of F1 professional driver Anthony Davidson, something of which he has categorically denied. He took to Twitter and said, “Woah, just seen all the “antdavidson is the new Stig” comments!.. Guys, seriously, it’s not me!

As fans carried on tweeting with comments still pointing towards Davidson, he said, “Oh my God, I feel under pressure!! You guys really odn’t take no for an answer! Perhaps I should say it IS me to keep you happy!!? It seems that since the Stig’s identity came out to the public at the end of the last series, Top Gear producers have been keen to keep everything under wraps, this includes presenter Jeremy Clarkson not knowing who it is.

With references made towards the new Stig being on the smaller side in terms of height, speculation is surrounding whether the Stig is that of a woman, and that it could be the German racing driver “Sabine Schmitz” who has appeared on the show in the past, and is well known for her driving the BMW “Ring Taxi” around the fantastic Nurburgring race track.

Did you tune into last nights show? Have you got your own opinions as to who you think the Stig is?
