Introducing Racing Legend - David Coulthard

Meet our Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix 2023 ambassador.

David Coulthard is a living legend of British Formula One racing. Now retired, he's still a familiar face around the paddock and on our TV screens.

David Coulthard started his racing career in karting when he was just 11, working his way up through the local championships and slowly gravitating south from his native Scotland and into Formula Ford in 1989, where he won the first ever McLaren/Autosport Young Driver of the Year award.

In 1993, his big break arrived when he was asked to be a test driver for the world champion F1 team Williams/Renault. He was test driver for Williams at the time of Ayrton Senna’s tragic death, after which he was paired up with future world champion Damon Hill to complete the F1 season for the team.

Coulthard remained at Williams despite talk of him moving to McLaren for the 1995 season and won his first Grand Prix in Portugal that year. This success put him firmly in the public eye and his promising start in F1 had already brought the Scotsman to the attention of McLaren who signed him up in 1996 and he remained there for eight years.

In 2005, Coulthard moved to Red Bull Racing where he became the highest-scoring British driver of all time with 535 race points, beating Nigel Mansell’s then-record of 482 points and gaining his rightful place in the annals of F1.

In 2008, he retired from the sport but is still a familiar face around the paddock and on our television screens.
