I do't see how someone like Anthony Davidson or Heikki Kovalainen could do the job, much as I like them. They wouldn't have the time.

It needs someone with very good coaching skills for the star driver in a reasonably priced car and anyway I don't WANT to know who it is.

I know exactly who I think would be perfect for the role, but I'm not going to name him for exactly that reason.

Should we even have a say on who the next Stig should be? Should anyone(Crash.net), even be asking the question who the next Stig should be? The whole purpose of the Stig, one of the reasons why we like the Stig is the mystery of not knowing.
Ben Collins is a cock. He shouldn't have taken the job if he didn't like the terms of the contract.

I think its about time Clarkson got himself trimmed down to size, it OK to call Collins a greedy T**T but himself and the other presenters are so money orientated that they need to be quiet and let others do what they are doing themselves, all three of them think they are bigger than they acctually are, but people don't watch top gear for the reports no more they watch because they like seeing the three of them act like tw*ts, maybe its time for them to finish and grow up..........

It's not just one driver.

Heikki Kovalainen actually was the Stig when the Renault F1 car lapped the circuit as they wouldn't let Ben Colins drive the car.

I thought everyone knew it was him anyway, most people knew a year ago.
