DC’s F1 Curtain call


And while Scott Speed was shooting his trap off on Speed Freaks, as you probably already know, this past weekend’s running of the Formula 1 season finale in Brazil, marked the end of F1’s elder statesman David Coulthard’s career in Grand Prix, after having made 246 starts and winning 13 races...

Thus, I think its pretty cool that DC was granted approval by all of the Formula One teams to run a special liveried white race car to mark the occasion, with the Red Bull Racing chassis not only celebrating David’s final Grand Prix, but paying homage to DC’s charity; Wings for Life.

Although it was a bit ironic as SPEED’s Peter Winsor interviewed the Scot after his first lap accident, that DC mused” “I started my F1 career with Williams and I ended my career with Williams...” As NOT one, but both Williams-Toyota’s played pinball with Coulthard’s RBR racecar.

But as for his charity salute; Good on you, mate!

  1. Yep, I was definitely shocked at that one!!!! Pretty bummed, too, but mostly shocked... I wanted to remind him just who has the momentum these days? NASCAR ratings down, IndyCar ratings up... ;-)

  2. Whale, I wasn't shocked... But certainly disapointed that he'd say such a damning thing, as apparently Speed has completely forgotten his Open Wheel Racing roots and shame on him!

    But please keep flying the Open Wheel flag as high as you do, as NOT all of us salivate over RASSCAR!
