Well, I will miss DC as I'm missing Mika, Michael, Irvine etc:(

DC is a true gentleman & driver and one of these drivers who got my full respect.

Anyway, good luck and hopefully a great last season to DC :)

At the end of 2005 Official Review:

Commentator: In what some consider, to be the most exciting season of recent time
DC: Well I've been there going around circles. I didn't even watch the races.

I will miss Coulthard. He almost never made a mistake and because of this, I see him as one of the best drivers, beside Häkkinen or Schumi. With his retirement another F1 era will end, unfortunately :sad:

Good bye David. One of my favorites drivers will leave the F1, but i think it was the best moment to retire :sad:
I hope next year he will be the commentators at BBC with Martin Brundle, why not? :cheezy:

Its sad the he quits, he have had a great career.
It was great for him to get on the podium in Canada.

For the next season, i think he will be replaced by Vettel.

Er sorry to buck the trend of complimentary comments to DC, but I think he picked the right moment to retire. He's missed out on so many wins that he deserved in the past, but this season, he's collided with Massa, Button, Glock, Sato, Vettel and Barrichello. That's a collision every two races on average. His spatial awareness has never been worse.

Agree with that. He's not made anyone happy this season (least of all Red Bull) so I think it's time for him to retire. I wont miss him as a driver, but I'll miss him as a F1 personality - he is intelligent and outspoken and he's always had interesting things to say.

I think another role for DC in the future would be a driver coach

DC - a gentleman and a welcome voice of reason over the many years of his driving career. He will be missed.

Despite overshadowed by Hakkinen's 2 WDC, I'll always remember him for his loyalty to his team.

It is pretty sad to see him go. At least he'll be like MSC to Ferrari after retirement.

I feel I have to at least partially stand up for DC in this case. In regards to the Massa and Button collisions, I thought Massa and JB went for gaps that really weren't there in their desperation to move up the grid. Lets not forget about the Red Bull's very poor cockpit visibility. I think that's been corrected in recent races after DC's run of collisions but the mirrors are/were next to useless on that car. In those cases though, I'm always amazed at how the driver's engineer never gets on the radio to the them, to inform them that somebody's behind them chewing away on their rear wing, trying to get past. That aside, in Australia and Bahrain, I definately felt that DC had lost out due to over-optimistic attempts to overtake him. But the lack of visibility would have been an issue too...probably :p.
