Onward Christian soldiers

Former Grand Prix driver Christian Fittipaldi is finally returning to race in Brazil. Now 34, Christian, the son of Grand Prix driver Wilson Fittipaldi and nephew of Emerson, raced in F1 between 1992 and 1994 with the Minardi and Footwork teams. He then went to the United States to drive for Walker Racing before moving to Newman Haas in 1996. He won two races before he moved to NASCAR in 2003 with Petty Enterprises. This was not a success and Fittipaldi returns to Brazil to race in the local V8 series with the Terra Avallone team.
