The UK's BBC and Sky TV channels have split the broadcasting of Formula 1 races. Naturally, each channel puts together promos to showcase the upcoming race, such as the Beeb's recent stellar effort before the Monaco GP. In advance of last weekend's British GP, Sky aired the first in a series called Tooned, which will follow the capers of team drivers Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button.

The shorts are being produced with British visual effects firm Framestore, who've taken home heaps of awards silverware of their own for commercials, music videos and movies like The Golden Compass and The Dark Knight. There will be 11 more to appear throughout the rest of the season, scroll down to watch the first.

      Button looks like the guy from cloudy with a chance of meatballs

      They both look ridiculous! (In a good way). I love Buttons hair :)

      I like how they accurately display Hamilton's ego snub up attitude and Jenson's laid back personality.

      If you see the man sneak behind the pilaster, he looks an awful lot like Luca de Montezemolo.

      Wow! Just when you thought F1 couldn't get any more annoying!

      Very nice! I hope they make more episodes.

      This is great, can't wait for the rest.

      OK, that was mildly entertaining. It was a good spoof on the McLaren overly technical culture and "secret lair" headquarters.
