Not that DC has that many moments on track, despite what he thinks about his own driving prowess. Because as Jenson Button attested to when we caught up with him, Coulthard is awfully hard on himself. "Clearly, I'm not the fastest DTM driver. I'm there or thereabouts, but I'm racing against fully professional DTM drivers. For me - obviously I take it seriously - it's like an extension to my career.
"For example, I did two or three laps in a Formula Ford, filming for the BBC, at Brands Hatch, and because it was a single seater it felt completely my domain. I jumped back in my DTM car 20 minutes later and I couldn't get comfortable for ten minutes, because my brain had taken a step back to what I'd done my whole career."
