"What I dream of is an art of balance." -- Henri Matisse
You would be hard placed to find many similarities between the careers of David Coulthard and Henri Matisse. In his famous quote, however, the French artist does perhaps sum up exactly where the life and career of Red Bull Racing's lead driver stands at the moment.
For Coulthard is a man whose life at the start of 2006 is very much an 'art of balance'. On the one hand he is a millionaire sports superstar, known around the world to racing fans and non-racing fans alike - and yet at the same time he remains the down-to-earth decent bloke that first appeared on the British racing scene in the late 1980s.
