Another Nakajima on road to formula one

Another member of a famous Japanese racing family is driving his career towards formula one, according to his father.

Satoru Nakajima contested some 80 grand prix events between 1Kazuki Nakajima7 and 1991, and now runs a team in formula Nippon.

His 23-year-old son Kazuki made his formula one debut with Williams last year and currently races at the Toyota-powered team alongside Nico Rosberg.

Satoru told the Swiss publication Motorsport Aktuell that another of his sons, 18-year-old Daisuki Nakajima, is this year racing in the Japanese F3 championship.

“He is very fast, perhaps even faster than Kazuki,” the 55-year-old said. “At the moment his car is not so good.”

Kazuki Nakajima does not like his father to attend too many races, but Satoru did come to the recent British grand prix, and he always attends Japan’s annual F1 race.

Satoru Nakajima revealed that he will also be trackside at Singapore later this year.

“I want to go simply because I am curious about the night race,” he explained.
