David Coulthard acknowledges that his Formula One career is over.

The Scot, who vacated his Red Bull race seat for Sebastian Vettel for the start of last season, is now linked with a return to the cockpit in the German touring car series DTM.

He still attends Grands Prix as an expert pundit for British television.

Coulthard, now 38, told Switzerland's Motorsport Aktuell that he is not thinking about joining Jacques Villeneuve in pushing to return to the F1 grid.

"I think deep in my mind the desire is still there to race a Formula One car at the front," said the veteran of nearly 250 Grands Prix dating back to 1994.

"But in exactly the same way I can see the reality that I had a good and a long career. I had great opportunities but I don't have them any more.

"And so I don't use up my energy thinking about non-existent options," said Coulthard.
