Cape Town - The sister of former Scottish Formula One driver David Coulthard, has been found dead.

According to The Telegraph website, Lynsay Jackson, 35, was discovered at her home near Dumfries in Scotland on Saturday morning.

Jackson, who has an eight-month-old daughter, ran a museum dedicated to Coulthard’s sporting achievements in his home village of Twynholm, Kirkcudbrightshire. She also previously ran his fan club.

A Dumfries and Galloway Police spokesperson said enquiries were continuing but her death was not believed to be suspicious.

“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.”

Coulthard, 41, made his Formula One debut in 1994 and had 13 Grand Prix victories in a career which spanned 15 seasons. In 2001 he finished second in the drivers’ championship.

After retiring from Formula One he became a BBC commentator and pundit.
