David Coulthard has admitted that the race at Silverstone this weekend could be his last home Grand Prix.
At 37-years-old, Coulthard, is the oldest Formula One driver although he is also the second most experienced behind Rubens Barrichello.
The Scottish Red Bull driver, told reporters he is not nostalgic about his possible retirement but also added that he still loves competing and wants to carry-on,
“When that moment comes, there you go. That’s the journey of life. You move on to the next thing.
I’m currently a Grand Prix driver, I have been for many seasons, and I’m sitting here still as a Grand Prix driver because I still enjoy it, and I get a buzz from it, and clearly I deliver a value enough for the team to commit to me for the last few years.
There will come a point, naturally, where that’s not going to continue and…boo hoo, you know? There are a lot of worse things that can happen to you. You just move on to the next challenge.”
The Brazilian Grand Prix will mark the 247th race weekend for Coulthard. He is currently running in twelfth place in the Championship while his team-mate Mark Webber is in eighth. The Red Bull Team are currently in fourth place in the Constructor’s Championship.
