The Scot contested 246 Grands Prix between 1994 and 2008 with the likes of Williams, McLaren and Red Bull Racing, and now works as a pundit on the BBC F1 commentary team and drives for Mercedes Benz in the DTM series.

While not officially confirmed, it is believed that Coulthard will take over from the to-be-ousted Jonathan Legard in the BBC commentary box, where he will work alongside his former sparring partner (and former manager) Martin Brundle.
