So, where do you stand on the career of David Coulthard?
Has he been an unbridled success whose statistics stand up to even the closest scrutiny? Is he a talented driver whose career had the misfortune to dovetail with those of a couple of the sport's rare freaks? Or is he someone who was given the best car in the field on at least two occasions, and failed to deliver a title?
The reality is that you could probably make a convincing argument for all three. Indeed, it's a question that Coulthard himself seems to struggle with in his new autobiography.
