- This PERSONAL steering wheel in our collection belongs to the brilliant Scottish champion David Coulthard, who, back in 1994, made his top flight debut in a Williams FW16. 1994 would be a terrible year for Formula 1, as it witnessed the tragic deaths of Roland Ratzenberger and the great Ayrton Senna, who drove a Williams like Coulthard. The tragic accident involving the Brazilian driver paradoxically gave him the opportunity to move from tester to driver, starting from the Spanish Grand Prix. He finished the Championship on 14 points in the driver standings.
