David Coulthard On Being Part Of The BBC's Formula 1 Team

Bleacher ReportCorrespondent INovember 24, 2008

As I have written in a previous article, the new BBC team for the 2009 season has been announced and on it is the recently retired Formula One racer David Coulthard.

Coulthard will continue as a test driver and consultant for Red Bull, after a long and successful Grand Prix career behind the wheel that included 13 victories and runner up spot in the world championship to Michael Schumacher in the 2001 season.

The 37-year-old Scot said:

"After 15 seasons competing in F1, my passion for the sport is still very much alive, and therefore I was delighted to be given the opportunity to share my views and experiences through the BBC coverage of F1.

"Many of the BBC team are known to me already and, for those members new to F1, I look forward to building on the established audience of F1 fans in the UK."
