When dads check in on their burgeoning offspring

The final round of the WSK Super Masters Series takes place this weekend at the International Circuit Napoli in Sarno, and there are a few famous dads visiting the paddock.

Most parents are lurking in the wings as their kids get on with their own business, but when you're a former famous racing dad - like Riccardo Patrese, Jarno Trulli or Alex Wurz - it's hard not to be ever-present.

Blending the role of supporter, coach, advisor and in some cases personal sponsor can be a fine balancing act for a devoted father.

Ultimately however, the young ones are on their own when the lights go off.
