Rubens deserved his victory - Coulthard
Coulthard and Brazilian Barrichello have raced together throughout their careers and the Scot claimed the Ferrari driver's maiden Formula One victory was long overdue.
"We have come a long way together in our careers," said Coulthard, who finished third at Hockenheim behind Barrichello and team-mate Mika Hakkinen.
"We came up through karting and Vauxhall-Lotus together. Rubens is a great driver and this win is long overdue. He deserved it and I want to congratulate him on it."
