NEWS: Nico Rosberg Wins British F1 GP @ Silverstone in Pirelli Tyre Chaos
German race ace, Nico Rosberg heads to his home F1 event at the Nurburgring next, with a win at one of the most dramatic (and miraculously good weather!) British Grand Prix events in years – with four rear left Pirelli tyre failures blighting the event for drivers, including UK darling Lewis Hamilton, who'd stuck it on pole in qualifying and led much of the race.
Hamilton was trying to hold off Vettel for the lead of the race when his rear left exploded, and dropped to last place. But he fought back to an incredible forth place (just 0.6s behind rival Alonso in third) at his home event, showing true talent and character, in his Mercedes. And there were Pirelli tyre failures for Massa, Jean-Eric Vergne (at 200mph!) and Sergio Perez. An investigation is no underway.
