Coulthard: Nurburgring is Our Home Turf

Friday June 22nd, 2001

David Coulthard has vowed to upset the Schumacher brothers at the Nurburgring - and suggested that the track is Mercedes' home turf rather than that of the title-chasing German duo.

"I think our history goes back much further than Michael's," said Coulthard. "Mercedes were around in the thirties, so I think the Silver Arrows have got claim on this land much more than the Schumacher brothers. It doesn't mean that we'll win but we'll certainly be trying."

Coulthard, who topped the first practice session for the European Grand Prix on Friday, also paid tribute to the performance of Ralf Schumacher during recent races and said that it was better for the championship to have more potential winners in the series.

"I haven't really raced with Ralf," said Coulthard. "I like Ralf and I respect what he's achieved and I think he's driven some great races. Other than seeing his rear wing in Imola disappear into the distance, I haven't had wheel-to-wheel races, which obviously I have with Michael. I think what it does do is create an interesting season for everyone."
