It was taken off i think because it wasn’t the normal stig driving , so it’s an unfair time regardless of slicks .

It wasn’t taken off because of who was driving.

The rules are it has to be a street legal car that can get over a speed bump. They also took of the Aston DB9R and that was 2–3 seconds faster than the FXX.

Even if it wasn’t on slicks it would/ should have been taken off , they had Michael Schumacher drive it course he will drive it better the normal stig slicks or no slicks .
Ok it was on slicks but he drove for Ferrari and still drives / tests for them .

The Stig has 10 years experience driving round the Top Gear test track. On that track the Stig is the better driver.

In that car Michael Schumacher had an advantage cause he knew the car and can adapt to any track . Let the real Stig drive it with slicks and without slicks, he wouldn’t get anywhere near the time posted before .

I dont believe you care because the car isnt German, unless the slicks were..

Ah yes, the Shumacher..

They also didn’t post that little Renault’s time cause of slicks. Do you think they will allow the real Stig to drive them both without slicks ?

@sandystrachan
i doubt it. they only could drive the fxx around the track because schumi drove it himself.
