I immediately didn't like him after that 1st sentence. The line about not needing driving lessons for 17 years, give me a fucking break. douche, go back to not talking.

Ben Collins is now doing the same with an autobiography due out soon.

It is unknown if the white Stig will be killed off and replaced with a third Stig or not.

Hes not that bad, but the hole situation is weird!

So now all the lap times are irrelevant on Top Gear? Maybe there will be a big segment where the new stig redoes a bunch of current cars? Maybe the new stig will be Grey?

I know this isn't going to happen but they should just rehire Ben Colins, the show wouldn't be in the same place as it is today if it weren't for him.

Not really. The stig can be any F1 driver for all I care. People like the stig character, not Ben Collins

Exactly. I could care less who would be behind the helmet, as long as they keep the character itself alive and keep it a "mystery", I'm all for it. I hope they hire a new Stig.

What about black stig? Besides, Ben wasn't the only driver portraying stig.

Edit: speaking of black stig, wonder if that viral video is actually legit or not.

I would LOVE to go against him, not that I think I would win. I just hate that kind of attitude 'I dont need a driving lesson, no one could teach ME anything".

the segment is pretty good though


I want to know what is the regular driver of that dragster usualy run
if the regular driver race it for 6 mos and a year or so , and his/her time get beat by ben colins with only 3 tries. that is pretty sad and yet impressive!!. The regular drive could kill him/herself LOL

but still I don't like his cockyness
