A Formula One double whammy for yBC

At Tuesday’s Brilliant Minds Showcase at Lords Cricket Ground in London, the yBC team filmed an interview with Formula One’s David Coulthard MBE.  David is well known as one of Britain’s most successful Formula One racing drivers, turned presenter, commentator and journalist.  He has driven with Williams F1, McLaren and Red Bull, retiring in 2008.

However, the interview was a little more “high octane” than our usual format.

In a move from our regular format, David was interviewed by Formula One’s Mark Gallagher.  Mark was a journalist and broadcaster for Formula One and later moved into a media consultant role for major sponsors.  He has worked close with team Jordan, Jaguar Racing, and Red Bull Racing before becoming head of Cosworth F1 in 2009.

The interview centred around David Coulthard’s experience as a successful driver, team member and sporting personality.  It will be released as part of our Brilliant Minds briefings in the coming months.
