Coulthard Out?

Red Bull driver David Coulthard is rumored to be out at the end of the year - replaced by who?
Team owner Dietrich Mateschitz hinted in an interview last week that his Milton Keynes squad might better be served by installing a young charger alongside one of the existing experienced racers next year.

With Mark Webber newly arrived and regularly in the top-ten qualifiers, the rumours hinting at a step up from junior team Toro Rosso for Tonio Liuzzi seem to suggest that David Coulthard - who made his Grand Prix debut way back in 1994 at Barcelona - is set for the elbow.

“I’m irritated to have to answer questions based on the fact I was born in 1971,” Coulthard fumed to the British newspaper The Mirror.

“The statistics show I am quicker in the races than Mark and the car telemetry shows it too. End of story.”

I like David Coulthard. Like Michael Schumacher, I feel as though he still has a lot to offer a team and it’s true he is still competitive. He often gets the most out of the under-performing Red Bull car.

Liuzzi is a driver that one cannot take seriously.
