In a statement issued by the team this morning, Red Bull Racing have confirmed the re-signing of Scottish driver David Coulthard for the 2008 season. Coulthard is one of the oldest drivers on the grid, and has brought a wealth of experience with him to the new team. With this experience and knowledge, David has scored a third place in Monaco last year, and many points along the way. While the new RBR3 – designed by respected aerodynamicist Adrian Newey – has teething problems, the pace of the car looks good when it holds together, and the continuing support of David from the team should enable the full integration of the Newey car into the squad for next year, providing the team with every possible chance of improving their success with DC once again at the helm.
Red Bull Racing is pleased to announce that it has extended its contract with David Coulthard to the end of the 2008 Formula One season. Red Bull Racong statement.
This now means that the driver line-up for Red Bull is complete for next year, as Mark Webber has still another year left on his contract.
More will be discussed later in the day at a press conference involving DC and team principal Christian Horner.
