Famed Scotsman Formula 1 racing driver David Coulthard is flying the "Wings for Life" charities colors, with 50,000 faces of their contributors on his car in the last race of his career at Interlagos, Brazil.I think that's pretty damn cool.

"I'm dedicating my last race to the vision of making paraplegia curable," he said. "Wings for Life helps accelerate the breakthrough in spinal cord research." Earlier this year the eBay auction of David Coulthard’s RB3 with the ‘Faces for Charity’ livery used at Silversone 2007 has been announced quite a while ago. The online auction was held by Red Bull on Sunday night and the car sold for 210,050 euros, or $267,729 dollars.

"David Coulthard has been supporting us greatly in the past, with several projects such as the Faces for Charity Action at the British Grand Prix in 2007", says Heinz Kinigadner, co-founder of Wings for Life, who appreciates his prominent support. "He will make waves and increase worldwide awareness for Wings for Life with his car at the race. Furthermore, David is appointed as an ambassador for Wings for Life."

The final race of the 2008 F1 Season is tomorrow at 12:30 PM EST, something else that's definitely worth noting that current F1 points leader Lewis Hamilton's younger brother is in a chair with CP. I sent him a link to my interview with Carol Hollfelder, who knows...... maybe it will get him racing!
