Exactly what I'm looking for - Hans Stuck flying his black 3.0CSL, airborne.. When I maximize it and try to save as Wallpaper though, I get a message saying that it's copyrighted - please don't copy. Aw, this sucks any ideas?

First of all, it's a low res thumbnail. Looks like crap when set as full screen wallpaper. Second, it's copyrighted, which means it ain't free. We photographer type people occasionally like to get a little money for our efforts. Just because it's on the net doesn't mean it's free for the taking, i.e. Napster.

That is a very famous photo. It was made into a poster in the 80's that I have a copy of someplace. I am 90% sure it was shot by a fellow named Rainer Schlegelmilch, one of the very best racing photographers in the business.
If you really, really like it, try sending him a note asking if it is his photo and what it would take to allow you to have a copy for personal use.
No guarantees, he may say no or it may be very expensive, but it doesn't hurt to ask.
