Coulthard impressed by BMW

By on

After the Canadian Grand Prix, Red Bull Racing driver David Coulthard could join the BMW Sauber party as he climbed onto the podium with Robert Kubica and Nick Heidfeld. The Scotsman is impressed by the progress of the Hinwil-based team and hopes that his own Red Bull can follow in the footsteps of BMW Sauber.

In his ITV-column, Coulthard said: "BMW Sauber deserve a lot of credit for their first victory in Montreal, and a 1-2 finish to boot.

"Since BMW took over the organisation three years ago they’ve had a clear strategy, achieved their targets and taken Sauber from midfield status to a top-three team. Red Bull are implementing a similar game plan, and although we’re a year or so behind BMW, there is every reason to believe we can achieve similar success.

"The goal for this year is to finish fourth in the constructors’ championship, and that’s where we currently lie following my podium in Canada. It’s incredibly close in our area of the grid, but I think it’s pretty impressive for us to be in front of manufacturer-backed teams like Renault, Toyota and Honda. The progress is clear for everyone to see."
