David Coulthard will be celebrating his 200th Grand Prix this weekend in Spain. Twelve years ago, during that same Spanish Grand Prix at Circuit de Catalunya in 1994 (pictured above), David Coulthard made his debut at Williams.
"Two hundred Grand Prix races is an achievement in itself, which I'm proud of, because you don't do that number of races by accident, you do it by maintaining a certain level of performance," said Coulthard. "I reckon that 500 points for 200 Grand Prix races is not a bad average."
"Of course, people will always talk about what might have been, but I can feel confident when I walk into the paddock knowing that there are only a few guys on the grid that have, or eve will, come close to achieving what I have."
"The start of my career was pretty difficult as it came about after Roland and Ayrton had died at the San Marino GP in Imola. Williams ran only one car in the following race, Monaco, as a mark of respect for Ayrton and then made me a Grand Prix driver at the Spanish GP in 1994, so my opportunity definitely came with mixed emotions."
