Mick Schumacher will finally arrive in Formula One next year after agreeing a multi-year deal with Haas.
After a title win in Formula Three in 2018, Schumacher leads Formula Two this season and has earned a further promotion for 2021.
In making the leap to F1, Mick will follow in the footsteps of father Michael Schumacher, a seven-time champion.
The pair are far from the first family duo to dominate a sport, however.
Keke and Nico Rosberg
Nico Rosberg claimed his one and only F1 drivers' title in 2016 - a victory that marked a rare double in the sport. Father Keke clinched his own sole F1 crown driving for Williams in 1982.
Graham and Damon Hill
The Rosbergs joined Graham and Damon Hill as the only father-son duo to win the F1 title.
Graham, who died in a plane crash in 1975, won his two world titles with BRM and Lotus in the 1960s. Damon, meanwhile, completed the sport's first family double when he led Williams to the drivers' and constructors' championships in 1996.
Dale Earnhardt Sr and Jr
Dale Earnhardt Sr ranks among the greatest names in NASCAR history, sitting alongside Richard Petty and Jimmie Johnson on a record seven championship titles.
Dale Jr followed his father into NASCAR and was competing in the Daytona 500 on the day Dale Sr was killed in a crash in the same race. The younger Earnhardt, whose half-brother Kerry was also a driver, finished third in the 2003 series - his best result to date.
Dale Sr was himself the son of a racing driver - Ralph Earnhardt.
Archie, Peyton and Eli Manning
Archie Manning set a fine example for sons Peyton and Eli, making his name at quarterback for the New Orleans Saints following a college career with the Ole Miss Rebels.
Peyton and Eli have surpassed their father's achievements, scoring two Super Bowl wins apiece. The former is regarded as one of the greatest quarterbacks in history, setting a league record for passing touchdowns (539) which Tom Brady and Drew Brees have each since topped.
Bobby and Barry Bonds
Three-time Gold Glove winner Bobby Bonds set a high bar for son Barry. Both enjoyed their greatest success with the San Francisco Giants, but Barry ultimately shone brightest.
The left fielder ended his career with eight Gold Glove Awards and 14 All-Star selections, having hit 762 home runs to earn a reputation as one of the all-time greats.
Peter and Kasper Schmeichel
Peter Schmeichel is regarded as one of the Premier League's greatest goalkeepers after winning five league titles, three FA Cups and the 1999 Champions League with Manchester United.
A tough act for Kasper to follow then, and he spent the bulk of his early career in the lower leagues, but he finally played his part in a story to rival any of his dad's successes when he helped Leicester City to a barely believable Premier League title in 2016.
Cesare, Paolo and Daniel Maldini
Between them, Cesare and Paolo Maldini won 11 Serie A titles and six European Cups with Milan, where the family name will be revered for eternity.
Each a former Rossoneri captain, the number three shirt that Paolo wore with distinction across 25 seasons at San Siro has been retired by Milan, who have vowed to only bring the number back into use if another Maldini family member makes the first team.
Indeed, Daniel, Paolo's son, is now in the first team but sports number 27 for now.
Andy and Owen Farrell
One the youngest player to ever win rugby league's Challenge Cup, the other the youngest player in English rugby union history when he made his debut.
Both Andy and Owen Farrell were 17 when they each entered the record books, with union star Farrell Jr - the England captain - well on the way to emulating his father's greatness in the 13-man code.
Regarded as one of union's best kickers, it is a Farrell family trait, given Andy's 3,000-plus points haul in 13 years with Wigan Warriors.
Muhammad and Laila Ali
The Greatest, Muhammad Ali remains the only three-time lineal heavyweight champion in history and his success in boxing is often transcended by his status as a role model for people across the world.
One of his nine children, Laila Ali followed her legendary father into the ring and enjoyed a fruitful career.
Retiring unbeaten in 24 fights, Laila was crowned WBC, WIBA, IWBF and IBA female super middleweight champion and IWBF light heavyweight champion in a fine eight-year spell in the sport.
