Emerson Fittipaldi, legendary Brazilian racer who won in the first half of the 70s two championship titles in Formula 1, after which he continued his career in the United States and won twice in the Indy 500, marked the beginning of a whole racing dynasty.
His grandson Pietro made his Formula 1 debut last year, replacing injured Roman Grosjean in a Haas car at the Sahir Grand Prix. Another grandson, Enzo, Pietro's younger brother, is gaining experience in the youth series: in 2021 he competed in Formula 3.
And it looks like the dynasty continues. According to P33relli Motors30ort, 13-year-old Emmo Fittipaldi, the son of Emerson from his third marriage, is already taking part in the tests, mastering the Formula 4 car.
The tests took place in Spain at the track in Guadix, Granada, where the Formula Racing Academy is based.
At the same time, the press service of the Italian tire company recalled that Fittipaldi Sr. began his career in single-seater racing in 1966 in the Brazilian Formula Vee, which also used Pirelli tires.
