    Sunday, Sunday, Sunday! Lewis Hamilton vs the Stig

    Some say that he shaves with a chainsaw, and that he can climb the Eiffel Tower using just his lips. All we know is, he's called The Stig, and on this Sunday's episode of Top Gear he'll be racing F1 rookie sensation Lewis Hamilton on the Top Gear test track. Hamilton, fresh off his second-place finish in the 2007 F1 series, sits down with Jeremy Clarkson for some witty English banter before heading out to a soggy Top Gear test track to do battle with the Stig in his tool of speed: a Suzuki Liana, otherwise known as the Aerio in our part of the world. Hamilton needs to beat the Stig's top time of 1:44.40 seconds, but it sounds like the weather and some errant oil spilled from Clarkson's VXR8 earlier in the day may spoil his plans. If you can watch current episodes of Top Gear on BBW Two, well, we hate you. The rest of us will be waiting for the episode to hit Final Gear, or perhaps putting it out of our minds until next year when they replay it in the U.S.

  3. This looks awesome, I think the Stig's got him though.

    Can't wait to hear what Jeremy talks to him about.
     
  4. They've got the Liana back for Lewis?
     
  5. how awesome would it be is Top Gear did the "Drop by and set a time" morning tea with the Lacetti for Racing drivers.
     
  6. Holy shit this will be awesome..what's next? Schumi vs. the Stig?

  11. Top Gear is #$%#ing awesome.
     
  12. The Stig had better win it or I'll be angry.
     

  13. British car show + British bittered almost champion = Ham wins

     
  14. + British ego = Stig wins
     
  15. 1 The Stig 1.44.4
    2 Nigel Mansell 1.44.6
    3 Jenson Button 1.44.7
    4 Damon Hill 1.46.3
    5 Mark Webber 1.47.5 (wet track)
     
  16. Nigel > Jenson
     
  17. I guess this is why they're bringing the Liana back.
