Get up close and personal with all the high-octane action of Formula One at the British Grand Prix, the ninth race of the 2015 season. Homegrown hero Lewis Hamilton (left) will be looking to repeat 2014’s podium-topping result and pull ahead in the battle for the drivers’ title.

But he’ll face stiff competition from his Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg and Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel. Plus Infiniti Red Bull Racing’s Daniel Ricciardo, determined to better his third-place finish last time round, will be nipping at his heels. But it’s not all about the thrill of the chase, with big musical acts on the weekend bill, Zorbing and more.
