Eduardo Barrichello determined to put his good genes to good use

Eduardo Barrichello is stepping into his father's shoes, the 16-year-old son of former F1 driver Rubens Barrichello is all set for a season of Formula 4 in the United States.

After warming up his talent in the karting ranks in America, 'Dudu' will contest the US series with a new team, DC Autosport.

"I am looking so much forward for the start of the season," said Eduardo.

"I love driving the F4 car and I am really excited to drive for such a team as DC Autosport. F4 is the beginning of everything for me and I want to do well at it."

His proud father and 11-time Grand Prix winner is as excited as junior.

"I am really excited for Eduardo," said Rubinho.

"He is really talented in karts and I am sure he will do great in formula cars as well."

Happy trails Dudu!
