David Coulthard will stay with Mercedes for a third season of DTM in 2012. The Scot, who retired from Formula 1 racing at the end of 2008, will also continue his television work as second BBC F1 commentator alongside Ben Edwards.
Turning 41 in March, Coulthard is hoping for a move up the grid this year, having scored one fastest lap and one point in each of his DTM seasons thus far.
“DTM moves into a new era in 2012,” he says. “There are new cars, new technical regulations and new manufacturers to promise even more excitement. The popularity of DTM is huge and the enthusiasm of the fans is just as huge. The first impressions of the C-Coupé are positive – especially the paddle shift on the steering wheel, which I obviously know very well from my time in Formula 1.”
For 2012, Ben Edwards joins Coulthard in the BBC commentary box as Martin Brundle has moved to Sky Sports alongside David Croft.
