David Coulthard must have been twiddling his thumbs after all the pre-season hype ended up with a procession at Bahrain and with a whole two weeks until Australia he needed to keep himself entertained – so what did he do?  He went to Northern Ireland of course and with Red Bull, did a full Formula 1 presentation infront of thousands of fans in Belfast.

Prior to the event David said: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to visit Belfast and bring Formula One a bit closer to the people of the City. I know Belfast is renowned for its love of motorsports and I’m sure I’ll get an amazing welcome as always!” – and it sure enough did look like a lot of fun.
