Formula 1 veteran David Coulthard joins Daniel Ricciardo and Daniil Kvyat as they go head to head around the Spanish track — Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya circuit, in a Red Bull duo of RB7’s for our boys and an RB8 for Coulthard.

What’s the definition of multi-tasking? Well, in its simplest form, try rubbing your stomach while simultaneously patting your head. Tricky isn’t it?

Now imagine trying a similar feat of manual dexterity, such as engaging DRS while defending from a following car as you desperately try to keep a tidy racing line to save your tyres.

Got the idea? OK, now add in some parallel mental celerity, such as plotting how you might break your rival’s DRS engagement, all while listening to your engineer tell you you’re fuel critical and figuring out what to do about it. Oh yeah, you also have to do all of that while travelling at 200mph, making sure you nail the apex of every one of the 16 corners of the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

Yep, driving a modern F1 car is something akin to playing jazz drums while doing algebra and flying a jet. And to demonstrate just how demanding driving a modern F1 car is, ex-F1 ace and Channel 4 F1 commentator David Coulthard recently took up the challenge of trying to match the pace of Daniel Ricciardo and Daniil Kvyat around the Spanish track, all while commentating on the battle being waged by our two drivers. The tools at their disposal? A pair of RB7s for our boys and an RB8 for our old boy.

Of course, 13-time GP winner DC is no slouch at the wheel and since hanging up his racing boots he’s carved out an award-winning broadcasting career, so this should have been a walk in the park for him, right?
