Michael laps his Ferrari FXX on Top Gear

After retiring from racing for Ferrari, Michael appeared on TV show Top Gear to do a hot lap of their test track. He drove his black Ferrari FXX and set a new lap record of 1:10.7.

The show led up to the piece by saying that their anonymous helmeted test driver “The Stig” would drive the car. However, because the only black FXX was owned by Michael, knowledgeable fans had an inkling as to who was really behind the wheel on that occasion.
