Scotsman David Coulthard will line up on the grid for the final time as a DTM driver at the DTM season finale in Hockenheim this weekend.
The former Formula 1 driver is ending his DTM career after three seasons and 33 races in order to concentrate more on his role as a Formula1 expert and commentator for the BBC, in addition to his other personal and business interests.
Coulthard will remain part of the Mercedes-Benz family as an AMG brand ambassador.

He has been busy in this role at press and customer events since 2011, answering queries and chatting with guests. In addition, he has supported AMG's development team in certain test activities.
In the 32 DTM races that Coulthard has contested so far, he has secured 16 points and twice posted fastest race lap. He was in third place on the second row of the grid in Valencia last year. Coulthard achieved his best DTM result of the season with fifth place in the season's showpiece event at the Norisring.
