Hamilton versus the Stig

Apparently Hamilton is the star in the reasonably priced car this coming weekend link

So, who do you think will be faster, Lewis or The Stig

Re: Hamilton versus the Stig

I think Hamilton's pure racing driver's line round the track will be quicker..Stig too often gets the tail out on cars. An F1/single seater driver will try to minimise oversteer.

Re: Hamilton versus the Stig

Hamilton crash and Stig win

Stig.

But it'll be interesting to see how Simon Cowell fares against LH's time...

Re: Hamilton versus the Stig

I think lewis will do it. He'll be at a guess 4 seconds faster than cowell, as long as it's dry. He'll be a bit faster than Ben Collins. Sorry, the Stig.

Re: Hamilton versus the Stig

Stig set the time in the suzuki, the lacetti is known to be MUCH faster round the track so no doubt that hamilton will beat the stigs time from the Liana.

I reckon, in the same car, they would tie and JC would use this for many "who is the stig" jokes.

I'd heard they were bringing the Liana out of retirement - but that could be complete bobbins obviously!

Nada at the mo!!

Re: Hamilton versus the Stig

Here's the Top Gear blog about the event.

He will be doing the lap in the Liana on a wet track, so he won't beat the Stig's record, but I'm sure he'll be back to do it in the dry one day.

Sorry Gary, but this sort of screws your poll up a bit mate

Re: Hamilton versus the Stig

Hamilton probably weighs half a ton less than the Stig. With a small power compromised vehicle this could make a big difference, but the wet track will cancel it all out.

Are there any Ferrari parts on a Suzuki...ah yes a chassis that bends in the middle when it shouldn't

Re: Hamilton versus the Stig

All this assumes, of course, that Hamilton and the Stig are not the same person (cue spooky music).

Re: Hamilton versus the Stig

The man with the most experience on a specific track will win.
But it will be close .... clean lines are the formula, oversteer a big no !

Re: Hamilton versus the Stig

I dare say they'll give LH a few practice laps. And IMHO that's all he's going to need.

Re: Hamilton versus the Stig

Well if it was on a dry track and all otherthings being equal, the Stigg winning would increase the entertainment factor....

However as it is on a wet track I certainly hope it is the Stig!!!

That was a amazing lap all things considered, and the fact that it really looked like he wasn't trying that hard!
