The Stig muscles in on Formula 1

Who's this?


Is it the 'Everyman' character at the start of the BBC's new Formula 1 titles, representing every possible driver, in the manner of the blank-faced James Bond character at the start of Casino Royale representing all of the different Bond actors, or is it simply someone with whom we Top Gear fans are much more familiar?

To decide for yourself, check out the YouTube below:

I wonder whether the James Bond stunt driver, Ben Collins, last seen careering an Aston Martin around the Italian lakes outside Sienna, holds any opinion on the matter? Or indeed, whether he was also hired to be the stunt driver in the title sequence shown above?

Interesting, Miss Moneypenny.
