Final Friday for Coulthard
On 27 May 1994 David Coulthard took part in his first official Formula One grand prix practice session - on the Friday of the Spanish Grand Prix. Today, 31 October 2008, he participated in his final Friday free practice sessions of his career.
Mark Webber 1st Practice P7, 2nd Practice P5: "We had a pretty productive day. I was happy with the car quite early on in the session as we got the balance right, which is always a good start. Getting on top of the tyres is not easy and we had quite changeable conditions, but overall that was a good start to the weekend."
David Coulthard, 1st Practice P18 2nd Practice P11: "There were changeable conditions out there. It was spitting with rain in the second session, so we took the decision to run a fresh set of tyres early on, just in case it rained towards the end. We haven't achieved the ultimate lap time, but I think we made progress during the day to stabilise the car.."
