On my way to work I was thinking about an F1 event, that's Pedro de la Rosa (?) overlapped by Mika Hakkinen and Michael Schumacher through his left and right side of his car at the same time.

Now I find this thread. I am using mobile phone, anyone can help to find that picture (if any)?

Ah JJ, my poor memory. I knew Pedro de la Rosa very likely was the wrong man.
Btw. Great rivalry between Hakkinen & Schumie back then.

The Dakar Rally (or simply "The Dakar"; formerly known as the "Paris–Dakar Rally") is an annual rally raid organised by the Amaury Sport Organisation. Most events since the inception in 1978 were from Paris, France, to Dakar, Senegal, but due to security threats in Mauritania, which led to the cancellation of the 2008 rally, the 2009 Dakar Rally was run in South America (Argentina and Chile).[1] It has been held in South America each year since 2009.[2][3] The race is open to amateur and professional entries, amateurs typically making up about eighty percent of the participants.





Definitely on the top ten on my bucket list.

I didn't know either until I googled that picture ^^

For those who don't know yet (there are other pic search engine):
- click on "images" in the google home page;
- click in the camera icon inside the window;
- paste the pic url or download the pic;
- explore the results (among which other sizes for a same pic can be found, for example).

Louis Cyr (born Cyprien-Noé Cyr, 11 October 1863 – 10 November 1912) was a famous French Canadian strongman with a career spanning the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
His recorded feats, including lifting 500 pounds (227 kg) with three fingers and backlifting 4,337 pounds (1,967 kg), show Cyr to be, according to former International Federation
of BodyBuilding & Fitness chairman Ben Weider, the strongest man ever to have lived.
