He's been a Formula One fixture for 14 years, but what do we really know about the Red Bull driver? Yes, he’s won 13 races and scored 513 championship points, but what about Elvis Presley, Claudia Schiffer and those kiss and tell stories? David Coulthard reveals all…

Q: What's the most unusual request you've had from a fan?
‘Impregnate me’.

Q: What would you be if you weren’t a racing driver?
Fat and happy, working in the family transport business.

Q: Who would you want to play you in a movie?
Claudia Schiffer or someone similar to that!

Q: Your favorite song for karaoke?
’Suspicious Minds’ by Elvis Presley.

Q: When you're at home, what do you listen to when driving?
I don’t really drive that much, but my ipod has millions of songs on it - pretty much every genre is covered.

Q: Funniest thing you've read about yourself in the press?
The kiss and tells are always funny as they always say you’re an amazing lover. I find that funny.

Q: What's in your garage at home?
Mind your own business!

Q: Your most embarrassing moment?
To be honest, things that people typically see as embarrassing moments, I see as life’s journey.

Q: Best part of being a Formula One driver - apart from the driving?
Flexible work hours.

Q: Tell us something we don't know about you?
You don’t know it, as I don’t want people to know!

Q: Your most prized possession?
I’m not into possessions...

Q: Person you most admire?
I really admire my parents, they have a good work ethic and how they brought us up is great.

Q: Do you have any bad habits?
Bad habits are usually something you don’t realise yourself. Who are they bad for, you or others? Normally a bad habit is something that annoys other people, so it’s hard to say…
