Persistent speculation that the BBC is set to dump commentator Jonathan Legard has been further fuelled by rumours David Coulthard is set to take his place.

For the past two seasons Coulthard has been a trackside pundit for the BBC's live coverage along with Eddie Jordan. But Legard's co-commentator, the highly respected Martin Brundle, is believed to have pushed for the appointment of the veteran of almost 250 grands prix.

Coulthard told the Sun: "I've had talks about what I could be doing within the show. They are finalising things."

A BBC spokesman added: "We're still looking at our lineup."
