There was no Tennis so you had little excuse to not watch this year's British Grand Prix at Silverstone. It was arguably the best race of the 2015 season so far and we were lucky enough to be there and get behind the scenes.

The amount of money in Formula 1 requires sponsors. We were invited to head to the practice day at Silverstone with Hisense, the latest addition to the Infinity Red Bull Racing team's list. The Chinese-bases company makes white goods but also specialises in displays so is going big on TVs with the view to increase its presence in the UK thanks to retailers including Asda.

Hisense also makes products such as smartphones and tablets but these aren't making their way to Blighty just yet. Thanks to their new partnership with Red Bull we were able to get behind the scenes at the Paddock Club, down the pit lane and inside the garage. Here's what we saw.
