Where Is David Coulthard Today? Channel 4 Presenter

It's been 8 years that David Coulthard has been working for Channel 4 as a presenter. His sudden absence from the show today was quite unexpected.

After retiring from Formula One, Coulthard worked as a consultant for Red Bull and then became a commentator and analyst for the BBC's Formula One coverage. In 2010, he returned to active racing by joining Mücke Motorsport in the DTM (German Tourenwagen Masters), and he retired at the conclusion of 2012.

Coulthard has also competed in the Race of Champions, coming in second place in the Drivers' Cup in 2008 and winning it in 2014 and 2018. Since Channel 4 took over the BBC's terrestrial television rights in 2016, he has worked as a pundit and analyst for them.

Hence, his sabbatical from the particular show has concerned audiences about the possibilities. Many people are talking about his health situation while others are speculating he might have taken leave due to his personal issues.
