As Top Gear's mysterious test driver, The Stig has driven just about everything on wheels – and more than a few things without. But an F1 car? That still remains a rarity, even on Top Gear.

That all changes in this latest promo clip, though. The video shows what happened when his Royal Stigness arrived at the headquarters of the Lotus F1 team in Enstone, England, where he somehow managed to scan his way in past security and got his hands on a Lotus-Renault E21, the V8-powered single-seater that Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean drove in the 2013 Formula One World Championship – and which the Stig will apparently be driving on stage during the upcoming Top Gear Festival in Durban. If you're not heading to South Africa this month, though (or even if you are), you can check out the footage in the video below.

      Pathetic how a little kiddie-kart "sounds" better than a 2014 F1 car.

      The Stig drove Alonso's 2004 Renault F1 car on Top Gear with a wet lap in 59 seconds...this was almost 10 years ago so...it's cool...

      Well now that the video is public, I guess he got arrested?

      I enjoyed that a lot. The slamming of Grosjean's locker, the popcorn, the surveillance footage vs other footage... So good. Thanks for posting this.
