14Watch Sebastian Vettel become first driver to lap Sochi GP circuit

In April of last year, Sebastian Vettel and David Coulthard drove the unpaved Sochi Formula One circuit in a pair of Infiniti M sedans, getting both muddy and airborne in the process. Now with tarmac laid down and fences put up, Vettel and Coulthard have gone back to the Black Sea vacation spot for another hot lap, this time in a Q50 Hybrid and without the need for mud flaps.

10Chris Harris and David Coulthard wring out a Mercedes Fintail at the Nürburgring

If there's one thing we've learned from the latest video from Drive, it's that the combination of Chris Harris and David Coulthard will produce some very quotable moments. Take this exchange, for example.

11Vettel and Coulthard drive Russia's very unfinished Sochi Circuit

The next Winter Olympics will happen in Sochi, Russia from February 7-23, 2014. Sometime after that, barring any delays, a portion of the Sochi Olympic Park will be turned into the Sochi Olympic Park Circuit, a 3.65-mile track for the first Russian Grand Prix in 100 years (the last of two Formula One grands prix were held in St. Petersburg).

5David Coulthard retires with one last DTM race

The BBC reports David Coulthard has officially retired from competitive racing after this weekend's DTM event in Hockenheim. The driver wrapped up three seasons and 33 races with Mercedes-Benz, but saw his final professional event cut short by contact with Timo Schneider. The collision spun Coulthard and put him out of the race. Schneider received a drive-through penalty for his part in the dust-up.

3Watch David Coulthard pilot the SLS AMG GT around the 'Ring

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT, replacement for the already-bonkers SLS AMG, adds 20 horsepower, stiffer springs and dampers, retunes the adaptive suspension and throws 20-inch wheels at the back end. It's a revamp that allowed the SLS AMG GT to snip five seconds off of a lap around the Nürburgring compared to the "snail-like" SLS AMG.

41Watch Red Bull take a tour of New Jersey in an F1 car

Formula One may not be descending on New Jersey next year for the Grand Prix of America, but the news hasn't stopped Red Bull from doing a little early scouting. David Coulthard dusted off the RB7 racer for a few quick sprints through the streets of New Jersey and West New York on the proposed course. As if watching the F1 bruiser dart down the waterfront and through car-lined city streets isn't enough to get us seriously stoked about the race, Red Bull also turned its team loose on the Lincoln

52Watch David Coulthard catch a speeding golf ball in an SLS AMG Roadster

So we told you a few weeks ago about former F1 hotshot David Coulthard racing down a golf ball in a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, setting some sort of goofy world record in the process. Well, now we have video of the feat.

19David Coulthard catches speeding golf ball at 120 mph in Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

Golf and driving are things that many men would rather be doing than working, so automakers are always keen to find an association between the two. The latest publicity stunt, however, drives the point home in more ways than one.

22Red Bull and David Coulthard off-road Austin's Circuit of the Americas, again

If you don't think David Coulthard has the coolest job on the planet, that's just because you haven't seen this video yet.

74Tom Cruise pilots David Coulthard's Red Bull F1 racer around Willow Springs

Earlier in the week, we got word that Tom Cruise spent time chatting with David Coulthard and getting comfortable with a Red Bull F1 car. Now, Red Bull has release video of Mr. Cruise's somewhat less than impossible mission at California's Willow Springs raceway. We'd be lying if we said we weren't impressed with the actor's ability to push the car around the track, since we know Formula 1 cars aren't the easiest machines to pilot.

39Ready or not, David Coulthard and Red Bull Racing arrive in Austin [w/video]

The Circuit of the Americas isn't quite finished yet, and Austin isn't quite ready for the Formula One circus to roll into town. But apparently someone forgot to tell David Coulthard and the Red Bull Racing team.

11Red Bull bringing F1 to Austin a bit early [w/video]

If you live in downtown Austin, Texas, don't plan on sleeping in next Saturday morning. First of all, you won't want to miss this, and secondly, even if you did, something tells us the wail of an F1 car running past the capitol building will keep you from snoozing anyway.

10Nico Rosberg frightens David Coulthard around the Nordschleife

There's a good reason why Formula One teams make two cars with one seat each instead of one car with two seats. Well, there are a lot of good reasons, actually, one of which is being that F1 drivers don't like riding shotgun, something that is immediately apparent after watching this video.

8Mercedes-Benz taps David Coulthard as AMG ambassador

Over the course of fourteen years in Formula 1, David Coulthard drove for only a handful of teams: Williams, McLaren and Red Bull. Championship-frontrunning teams all, but arguably no single manufacturer has been as influential on his life and career as Mercedes-Benz.

4Coulthard takes to the tin-tops for Mercedes DTM

Formula One drivers have a relatively short career span. Sure, they're starting younger and younger, but few driving aces extend their careers beyond their early thirties, if that long. David Coulthard is one notable exception, retiring after 15 consecutive seasons in F1 at "the ripe old age" of 37.
