Coulthard stays at McLaren

TO no-one's great surprise it has been confirmed that David Coulthard is to stay with McLaren next year and is not going to join the new Stewart Grand Prix as rumors had suggested.

Coulthard signed a McLaren contract for 1996 and 1997 last year and the only option was in favor of the team. Coulthard's manager, Tim Wright of the International Management Group, commented that David is quite happy at McLaren which he believes is on the verge of big results.
