Yes, the previous comment about the Fittipaldis is correct. The two brothers, Emerson and Wilson are from the same generation, whilst Wilson's son, Christian, is the next generation in line.

There are only two different generations of Fittipaldis to have raced in f1, while it is true that there were three fittipaldis, Emerson and Wilson were brothers making them the same generation. That leaves Wilson, the son of Wilson in the second generation
