Lotus is a relatively small team in terms of budget, but of course the Stig will not be swayed by things as trivial as money. He is much more easily impressed by the work of the hundreds of people that would fill the corridors, rooms and hallways of the F1 team's factory. Not to mention the smell of fresh tires drives him absolutely crazy.
Everybody knows that he naturally faces magnetic north and has a heart that ticks like a watch. It's not surprising then that the Stig has the necessary skills to break into any kind of facility, start a Formula 1 car all by himself and test it to its absolute limits.
Some say that all F1 drivers can trace their genetic origins to a distant cousin of his. Others believe that if left alive, he will the Death Star and use it to impose motorsport by force across the galaxy. All we know is he's called the Stig.
