Coulthard expects to sit on the bench in 2009

Now in an advisory role for Red Bull Racing, David Coulthard will see a lot less time behind the wheel. Although the Scotsman isn't expecting much, especially with the testing ban coming into effect next season, as most mileage that could be done will most likely be run by the race drivers, Mark Webber and Sebastien Vettel.

Coulthard told 'ITV': "Well, the in-season testing ban will obviously reduce the opportunities for me to drive the car, and I may not end up having much, if any, seat time.

"Once the new car comes in February the race drivers will be in that all the time, so at this stage I don't expect to do a great deal of running outside of promotional events."
