David is consultant to Red Bull Racing and also acts as an ambassador for Mercedes-Benz. Coulthard returned to racing as an active driver in the DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters) series in 2010, piloting a 2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class for Mucke Motorsport and retired at the end of 2012.
David was the first ever recipient of the McLaren Autosport BRDC Award for young drivers. With McLaren, he took his new team’s first win in three seasons at the 1997 Australian Grand Prix. In all, he scored 12 of his 13 Grand Prix wins and 51 of his 62 podium finishes with McLaren, and, after supporting team-mate Mika Häkkinen to the drivers’ championship in 1998 and ’99, he finished runner-up to Michael Schumacher in 2001. He amassed a large points haul and is sixth on the all-time scorers list, being the top British scorer. A successful businessman, David formerly owned a hotel in Monte Carlo.
