Silverstone is no longer the pits

Those petrol heads lucky enough to be heading to Silverstone this weekend may struggle to recognise the place. After last year's upgrade to the famous track, this year the teams can luxuriate in a brand new pit and paddock complex. It's not before time, to be honest.

Living it up with Sir Cliff at the Monaco Grand Prix
