David Coulthard has called time on his premier motor racing career. The former McLaren and Red Bull driver, now 41, switched to the top German touring car category DTM after his 247-grand prix career ended a few years ago. He is also now a commentator for the BBC's coverage of formula one.

In a statement issued by Mercedes, it was announced he will retire from DTM after this weekend's Hockenheim finale. "The weekend will be my final opportunity to compete at this level as I will stop racing in the DTM to concentrate on my developing off-track businesses and of course my family," said Coulthard.

Meanwhile, Michael Schumacher has clarified that he will also completely retire from premier motor racing after his F1 comeback concludes next month in Brazil. "Formula one offers the maximum in terms of emotion, speed, and complete work," he told Italy's La Gazzetta dello Sport. "Any other kind of car would not give me the same emotions. I am stopping here completely." (GMM)
