Eight children from the Silverstone area have won the chance to accompany Lewis Hamilton and his rivals onto the Grand Prix grid this weekend.

The young F1-fans were selected from local schools and supported by double amputee driving hero Billy Monger - known as Billy Whizz to be part of this year's event.

They'll each accompany the F1 drivers to the track at the start and finish line on race day.
