Coulthard calls for twin pit boxes

David Coulthard believes each Formula One team should be assigned two pit boxes at each Grand Prix in future.

In his latest column for The Telegraph, the veteran of 247 grands prix writes that twin boxes in the pits would help drivers avoid losing time when the teams are forced to stack them in the pits, which several teams were forced to do under the safety car in Monaco last week.

"This has fallen on deaf ears before, but I think we should have two pit boxes, because otherwise it neutralises the inter-team battle as it benefits the guy in front," said Coulthard in his latest column for The Telegraph.

"If you want to see a true battle of man against man we should get away from this single stop."
