I was a wee bit disappointed that he didn't do a proper lap in the Liana.  Would have been interesting to see how his lap time compared...

I knew something *might* be up when they revealed they had the Enzo FX. I've yet to read one review in a car magazine that's actually driven one! Also, did you see the line he took in coming out of the 'follow through', much tighter than the "stig".

Ahhhhh... Top gear is back  O0

His line through the last corner was also different to the regular stig and he was so smooth into and out of corners when the regular stig usually has a bit of power oversteer exiting some parts. The FXX that was on last night is meant to be owned by Schumacher.

They always say the first corners F1 drivers generally take different to the stig, I'll watch it again.

It also goes to explain why its 7 seconds faster than the Gumpert. Its safe to assume that Schumacher helped to develop the FX (him and other FX owners) and  he is really at home driving the car. It did look awesome, you could see that it was generating down force in the corners.

I think its safe to say Schummie is at home in any car.  I've seen him at the Race of Champions and at karting events and he's just a sensational driver.  It was interesting to see the car bobble on its suspension while it decided whether to grip or spit itself off the track.  I think the TG track is a little small for the FXX but through the higher speed corners it looked supreme.  It's not exactly road legal though is it?

Actually it shouldn't be on the leader board since you can’t take it out and it won’t go over speed bumps which I believe was TG stipulation on what goes on the power board
