Top Gear’s The Stig without a helmet?

After the latest episode of Top Gear (season 9, episode 2), there has been some speculation as to whether a blonde guy who can be seen driving the Bugatti Veyron in a few shots is the Stig.

Here are the sharpest frames:

The BBC say on their website that the Stig drove the Veyron back to Italy after the big race with Hammond and May in a light aircraft, and that a film crew went along and got some shots of it. Maybe these clips were used in Sundays episode?

As for identifying the guy behind the steering wheel, I’ll leave that to you guys 🙂

Leave a comment if you’ve got a suggestion!
