F1 sons rev engines on road to the grid

Two youngsters with familiar names are revving their engines in the direction of Formula 1. Almost two decades ago, Kimi Raikkonen and Alex Wurz were teammates for a time at McLaren. 17-year-old Charlie Wurz, who is Monaco-born, made his single-seater debut in 2021 in Formula 4 but is currently dominating the Formula Regional Oceania championship in New Zealand. “Nice job son,” Austrian Alex Wurz said on social media. “Pole, win and championship lead down-under in Kiwi land after 6 from 15 races,” he added. Meanwhile, Gino Rosato, a former Ferrari official and close friend of 2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen, spent a day this week watching 7-year-old Robin Raikkonen race karts.
