Multiple Formula 1 Grand Prix winner David Coulthard is looking to cause an upset at the global Race of Champions at Bushy Park on December 13 and 14.

And the 13-time Formula 1 Grand Prix winner will partner Williams F1 development driver Susie Wolff, ROC’s first ever female racer, for Team Scotland in the ROC Nations Cup on December 13.

“I always enjoy the Race Of Champions and it will be a special treat to compete alongside Susie for Team Scotland. Ever since our paths crossed in DTM [Germany Touring Car Masters], we’ve known each other well and we’ll do all we can to upset some of the bigger fish in the ROC Nations Cup,” Coulthard said.

Coulthard, now a BBC television commentator, had a glittering Formula 1 career, taking 13 grand prix victories and finishing in the world championship top three on five occasions in over a decade at the top, before moving to Germany’s DTM championship.

Coulthard said there’s no doubt that he and Wolff would be up against some strong teams in Barbados but “you never know what can happen at such an event” where the smallest mistake can make or break everything.
