David Coulthard, Red Bull Racing-Ferrari. Nurburgring, 2006David Coulthard will become the tenth driver to have participated in 200 Grand Prix at the Spanish Grand prix this weekend. Fittingly, it is also the circuit where he started his Formula One career in 1994 at Williams, replacing the late Ayrton Senna.
