Wow, very sad and tragic.

I was watching him on Saturday Kitchen this morning, clearly unaware of what had happened, thoughts with him and his family at the moment.

Article just flashed on sky news. RIP

F1 David Coulthard's Sister Found Dead

Officers confirmed they were investigating the circumstances surrounding her death but said that it was not suspicious.
Mrs Jackson, 35, married husband Will in 2011 and has an eight-month-old daughter.
Mrs Jackson used to run The David Coulthard Museum in Twynholm, which is dedicated to the racing driver's career.
He once said that she had "naturally" been a better driver than him.
The family have been informed of her death. Her parents, Duncan and Joyce, are said to be returning from a holiday in Australia.
Mr Coulthard appeared on the BBC television programme Saturday Kitchen, with the chef James Martin, this morning. The news is understood to have been broken to him after his appearance and he was returning to Scotland.
Police officers and ambulance services attended the home of Mrs Jackson at Crossmichael, Castle Douglas, this morning.
A Dumfries and Galloway Police spokesman said: "We can confirm that a 35-year-old woman was found dead in her home today in Crossmichael.
"Our enquiries into her death are ongoing at this time but there are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances and a report is being prepared for the procurator fiscal."

I think there is very much a place for this thread here... I'm in shock about it..... it has to do with a former racing driver and I think it is nice to have a place where people can send out their condolences...

my thoughts going out to DC and his family, it's horrible news

This is not a motorsport related topic therefore I'm closing the thread although it is a tragic event. Condolences to him and his family.

My condolences to the family.

Unfortunately this is a motorsport forum and she is not a motorsport figure, she is related to a motorsport figure so this is not for this forum. Feel free to post in the RIP thread I Paddock Club.

Oh my gosh, I have just seen the news (on Twitter) about DC's sister Lynsay. How awful. She leaves an eight-month-old baby girl. My thoughts are with DC and the family... :cry:

My deepest sympathies with DC and his whole family as well as the family of his sister. He wasn't told until after his live TV appearance on the BBC this morning. Early reports are pointing to a heart attack at the young age of 35:( So very sad.
