Entitled "Tooned", the series debuted on Sky Sports F1 prior to Sunday's British Grand Prix, with subsequent episodes planned for each of the season's remaining eleven races. Featuring a clean cut Button (looking strikingly like Flint Lockwood from "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs"), a typically fiery Hamilton with trademark pencil beard, and Nigel Mansell's mustache circa 1995, McLaren has done a great job of showing the lighter side of F1. Now if we can just get a cartoon Nicole Scherzinger (Hamilton's girlfriend and Pussycat Dolls singer) in the next episode we'll be all set.
