He won 13 grands prix, but it took him 247 races to achieve this. After starting his F1 career with Williams, the Scot moved to McLaren, where he had the misfortune to be regarded as the No 2 motorist to Mika Hakkinen. After eight years at McLaren, he was signed up by Red Bull Racing — sadly, they were not the team they’re now, and Coulthard spent much of the closing four years of his career as an also-ran. Red Bull clearly saw something in him, yet, as he’s now a team advisor and lately showed actor Tom Cruise the way to drive an F1 car.
David Coulthard Net Worth $77 Million
Despite his relatively few wins, the 535 points he scored make him the highest-marking British motorist. He has been a regular member of BBC’s F1 team since 2009. Coulthard co-owned Monaco’s Columbus Hotel, which was sold in 2010 for more than 30 million. He lives in Monaco and has properties in London, Belgium and Switzerland. Using the resort sale proceeds and past salaries from racing, Coulthard is worth at least 50 million. Coulthard’s second cousin, New Zealander Fabian Coulthard, is also a racing driver, racing in the Australian V8 Supercar Championship Series for Brad Jones Racing.
