After a 15 year stay in the top flight, David Coulthard has finally retired from Formula 1. DC is a client and a friend and was the first F1 Driver I worked with at McLaren- Mercedes.

I have personally learned a tremendous amount from him. He is thoroughly professional, articulate, and highly skilled both in the car and in the manner in which he conducts himself with the media. He set the bench- mark for me as to how a professional sportsman, and particularly a Racing Driver, should conduct themselves.

David is also the first example I give to any of my up-and-coming young drivers on how to prepare yourself physically to perform in the car. I am very honoured and grateful to have had that experience at first- hand and to be able to reap the benefits of this with any of the Drivers I work with.

Thanks, DC and congratulations on a wonderful career.
