GP Week : Issue 34
> F1NEWS> Coulthard: Grooves spoiled F1 DAVID Coulthard has told GPWeek that the past decade of Formula 1 has not been a classic era from a drivers’perspective. The Scot, who prepares to take part in the final Grand Prix of a decade-and-a-half long F1 career, told GPWeek that the introduction of grooved tyres had taken something away from the thrill of Formula 1. With F1 set to switch back to slick tyres in 2009, Coulthard admitted that his years on slick rubber had been by far his most enjoyable as a racing driver. “In pure pleasure terms the slick tyre, wide track cars were pleasurable because they just felt like racing cars. The grooved tyre cars, although I’ve been able to win in each of the variations of Formula 1, so I’ve adapted to all the different eras of what have been very different versions of Formula 1. I never really thought the grooved tyre cars were, although it was interesting to develop the tyres with the tyre manufacturers because you could really see how the tyre was working with the graining and grooves, but from a pleasure point of view from 1998 to now it has not been a classic era of beautiful cars to drive.” For the full interview with David Coulthard, go to page 22 Win a chance to race Bruno Senna HILTON Racing, in association with Bruno Senna, is giving one GPWeek reader and a friend the chance to win a once-in-a- lifetime opportunity to meet and race the Brazilian at a kart experience on Friday 28 November 2008.
