Video: Barrichello goes for an emotional ride with his son

.

Racing drivers are notoriously reluctant to ride as passengers in racing cars, for obvious reasons, but Rubens Barrichello made an exception for his son Eduardo.

The 15-year-old initiated his racing career in karting and is gearing up for a run in single-seaters.

Last weekend he took his dad for a spin in a GT car. It started off with a bit of proud filming by Rubens, but the former F1 driver was slowly overwhelmed with emotion as he witnessed Eduardo - and some the family's good genes - at work.

It's a short video, and quality isn't the best, but it's still a nice moment of father-and-son bonding in their favourite environment.
