Here comes another son of a famous father

THE flow of sons of famous fathers seem never ending in Formula 1. After Hill and Villeneuve, the sport is awaiting the arrival of a new Fabi, one of the Cheever gang, another Rosberg is on the way and now from Brazil comes word of a new Piquet.

Angelo Piquet is 16 years old and on Sunday he finished second in his debut race in the South American Formula 3 Championship.

Nelson Piquet set up his own team in order to run Angelo and that could pay off rapidly given his flying start. The next step will be to see how the youngster, nicknamed Nelsinho by the Brazilians, does when he transfers to European racing.
