See The Absurd Difference Between An NBA Center And An F1 Driver In One Photo

Five-foot, eight-and-a-half-inch-tall Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton tweeted this picture of himself standing next seven-foot, six-inch-tall Yao Ming. Strangely, it's not the first time an NBA center made an F1 driver look like a toy.

Back in 2001, Shaq visited the German Grand Prix and took a tour up and down pit row. While he was at the Sauber team's pit, he took a photo-op with five foot six Nick Heidfeld. Seven foot one Shaq picked the little German up and overhead-pressed him. The picture was awesome. The video was even better.


Seeing NBA players square up with F1 drivers is like watching Twins, except with world-class professionals at the top of their field, and not the Schwarzenegger/DeVito dynamic duo.
