Coulthard tells McLaren to rectify problem

MCLAREN driver David Coulthard has told his team to sort out a heat transference problem, which he claimed hampered him in his World Championship bid this season.

The Briton suffered burns and blisters after the Malaysian Grand Prix and has called on his mechanics to rectify the problem before testing resumes in December next season.

Coulthard said: "It's a problem we have suffered all season, but this is the worst time, it's resulted in a blister. It's been very uncomfortably and it's something we must sort out for next season."

The Scot flew back to Europe with a lint and ointment dressing on the blister, but team-mate Mika Hakkinen did not require any treatment.
