Coulthard looks to the future
Coulthard, who has often had to play deputy to team-mate and double world champion Mika Hakkinen, is desperate to win a championship himself.
"I have done all my learning in Formula One a very public kind of way," said Coulthard. "I have always had championship winning cars at McLaren and Williams and people have expected a lot.
"People may have the impression that I have been around in the sport a lot longer than I have, but there is nothing I can do about that. I think only short term really and only about the future.
"That's the way I live and I will always try to get the best out of myself. Of course, I want to win the world championship. But if I can't then I want to avoid making any mistakes and see where I end up."
