David Coulthard does helipad donuts atop Burj Al Arab hotel

What’s better than doing donuts? Doing donuts on a helipad some 210 metres from the ground of course. David Coulthard decided it would be an appropriate way to celebrate Red Bull Racing’s F1 Championship win last weekend by performing some donuts on the 24-metre wide helipad atop the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai. We wonder if Coulthard was a bit nervous just before dropping the clutch?
