You hit the gas on the straight and start changing gear every 50 metres," said the 43-year-old, who contested almost 250 grands prix through the sport's fabled V10 and V8 eras. "The world starts flying past you so fast that you feel like you're in Star Wars," Coulthard enthused. "Only the downforce is a bit disappointing," he added. "We had more in my last year in formula one in 2008." (GMM)
