The notorious British tabloid News of the World, meanwhile, on Sunday quoted Miss World contestant Vivian Burkhardt as slamming Hamilton for dumping her -- the direct result of his publicly dating her at the Cannes Film Festival before publicly switching to his current Pussycat Dolls pop-singing girlfriend at Monaco mere days later.
"Mega-stardom needs to be put on hold for now, with total focus on this critical and busy mid-season phase," Brundle advises.
Coulthard insists he doesn't dislike Hamilton, as has been suggested in some reports, but he does think his countryman's press coverage at present is the product of his current lifestyle.
"If you put yourself out there, there are going to be observations of where you're going, what you're doing," the 37-year-old Scot told the Daily Telegraph.
Coulthard said: "If you look at a Mika (Hakkinen)or Kimi (Raikkonen), they get very private and didn't or don't do a good deal. They are low-profile guys. Kimi is not off doing book signings or celebrity parties."
