Ten of the best pictures which tell the story of the British Grand Prix weekend.
James Rossiter, Thursday
Force India planned to give simulator driver James Rossiter a run in their car on Friday, but the plan was scuppered by bad weather.
Sergio Perez, Friday
Sergio Perez was hardest hit by the tyre failures during the weekend. He had one during practice and another in the closing stages of the race which cost him a potential points finish.
Lewis Hamilton, Saturday qualifying
Lewis Hamilton waves to the crowd before getting in his Mercedes and setting pole position during qualifying. His 1’29.607 lap was the fastest ever seen around Silverstone in its current configuration.
Williams drivers, Saturday
Williams marked their 600th race at Silverstone and team founder Frank Williams was joined by present and past race drivers.
Joining current racers Pastor Maldonado and Valtteri Bottas are Alain Prost (driver in 1993), Nigel Mansell (1985-88, 1991-92 and 1994), Nico Rosberg (2006-09), Damon Hill (1993-96), Rubens Barrichello (2010-11) and Jenson Button (2000).
Sebastian Vettel, British Grand Prix
Sebastian Vettel arrived on the grid to line up third. But after 41 racing laps his Red Bull came to a stop at almost exactly the same point on the track due to gearbox failure, costing him what seemed a likely victory.
Start, British Grand Prix
Mark Webber, who on Thursday announced his plans to leave F1 at the end of the year, made a particularly poor start and lost part of his front wing as the pack squeezed into Abbey at high speed.
Felipe Massa, British Grand Prix
When Felipe Massa’s tyre burst on lap ten, two laps after Hamilton’s, it became clear there was a serious problem with the rubber. Four laps later Jean-Eric Vergne’s failed as well and the Safety Car was deployed while the mess was cleared up.
Kimi Raikkonen, British Grand Prix
Lotus ran their cars in two slightly different configurations at Silverstone, Kimi Raikkonen used their new Drag Reduction Device while Romain Grosjean used revised rear bodywork. Grosjean qualified ahead but ultimately retired due to front wing failure.
Raikkonen finished fifth though earlier in the race Grosjean was ordered to let him by. As he did the pair were hit with debris from Jean Eric Vergne’s tyre as it failed. Raikkonen ran second in the closing stages but fell to fifth place as he was passed by drivers who had stopped to take on new tyres.
Nico Rosberg and Mark Webber, British Grand Prix
Webber closed on Nico Rosberg in the final laps but the Mercedes driver had enough in hand to win by less than a second.
Nico Rosberg, British Grand Prix
Rosberg celebrates his second victory of 2013 which moves him up to sixth in the points standings.
