With formula one between grands prix, many familiar faces spent their weekends in a slightly different racing environment.

Sports lover Mark Webber was F1's most recognisable face in the paddock of premier motorcycle racing MotoGP's Silverstone round.

But also at the British circuit was Mercedes' Nick Fry, HRT driver Karun Chandhok, commentator Martin Brundle and occasional steward Johnny Herbert.

"I like to watch bike racing on TV," Australian Webber told sport1. "I don't live far away, I have seen many friends here, and there are also many Australians working in MotoGP."

Elsewhere, despite the ban on in-season testing, more serious business was taking place.
