David Coulthard has indicated he intends to stay in the German touring car championship DTM into the near future.
The 13-time Grand Prix winner, whose last season in F1 was with Red Bull in 2008, debuted in the German category this year with a 2008-spec Mercedes C-Class.
"In 2012 the new (DTM) cars are coming and I will like to be here for that," the Scot, 39, told Bild am Sonntag newspaper.
Coulthard, who attends all the grands prix as a pundit for British television, indicated he will discuss the situation with Norbert Haug by the end of the year.
He also said he hopes to see his F1 nemesis Michael Schumacher on the DTM tracks one day.
"He's a big name and it would be great to see him in the DTM in a few years," said the former McLaren driver. "We need people like that."
