  1. What a silverstone!!

  2. What a thrilling qualifying session! Shame about the result for Mercedes, though, since Hamilton is too far back to stop Rosberg from walking away with it. It’s looking like a thriller from 2nd place down though!

  3. I am not a Hamilton fan, actually I do strongly support Ferrari, but watching his interview on BBC made me very sorry for him. Go Lewis, go! (never believed one day I could have said that…)

    1. Same here, not a ‘fan’ of him but I really would like to see the two Mercedes drivers closer to each other in the championship.

    Button P3, Magnussen P5
    Alonso P17, Raïkkönen P19

    This makes my day!

    1. I’ll never understand people enjoying other’s failure.

      1. its called sport. im happy Hamilton is 6th :)

    2. Kills mine, but Alonso clearly found the situation of 4 front cars being at the back so ridiculous he was almost laughing at his own loss.

      I have nothing against McLaren, and don’t mind seeing them succeed, but I am a Ferrari fan and this result is just a disaster.

      1. I must admit I found Alonso’s attitude in the press pen surprising. In a good way of course. Seems he’s decided to just enjoy himself this weekend, and not worry too much about a championship he’s probably not going to win anyway :-)

  5. Can anyone remember a larger gap between pole and last place in recent times ?
    Like 15 seconds ,

    1. quite normal in mixed conditions.

    2. The weather conditions made it like that though. If the weather and track conditions change between Q1 and Q3 then it is perfectly understandable.

  6. i am a Ham fan from the start but he seriously has a mental mindset problem. it is obvious he thought he could screw up Rosberg lap as payback. Unless he gets his own strategist & some guidance from someone like Mika Hakkenin his year & career is finished.

    1. Not Lewis fan, but he really needs to start getting himself together. He is so talented that it is a sin not being able to deliver your best

    2. Or if he bothered to finish laps. He made the same mistake here as in Austria.

  7. What a great result for the Marussias!
    Shame for Ferrari and Williams, Sauber drivers as disappointing as usual, big kudos to Rosberg, Vettel and Button !

  8. Not bad for Red Bull #2 driver today ;)

  9. In 2008 Heikki Kovalainen took pole position for the British Gp. On July 6th 2008, Hamilton won the British GP. Tomorrow will be the 6th anniversary of that day.

    1. Rosberg is also Finnish, so therefore what we are saying here is… Button is going to win the Grand Prix!

    2. If it rains tomorrow (if, if …), Hamilton could win it yeah ^^

      1. Yeah, no. If it rains there is no DRS, and there is a Red Bull in front of him. If Vettel defends, he’ll have a hard time.

  10. For a split second I thought we were going to see the Vettel finger :p.

  11. Here’s hope the weather will stay as unpredictable as today. It’s time for another Button win.

  12. Wow, Vettel, Wow!!! And did he do it?!! And Nico still beating Ham like a pro! Great job. Well, great qlf. Let’s hope that tomorrow delivers us a great race too.

  13. what a surprising finish to qualifying. It would have been more interesting if Hamilton finished his lap, he would have finished it ahead of Rosberg – which would have had rosberg fuming that Hamilton held him up, and then it would have been a never before seen investigation into holding up – as they would have finished 1-2. watching rosberg’s onboard of his final lap, it is obvious he was going faster then Hamilton. as it stands – another costly mistake by Hamilton in qualifying, not entirely his fault, but still.

    1. Well, look at it this way.
      Had Hamilton finished his lap and got on pole… He would have been given a 5 place grid penalty for impeding, and would have started 6th, anyway XD

    2. It was entirely his fault.

  14. Common sense has killed Lewis qualy. He gave up because people were over two seconds downs by sector 2… but S3 was the place to be. Wish you and epic race, otherwise Rosberg will extend his lead even more.

    1. he was also told by his team that if he cant go fastest to let nico past. so he let nico past – great job by nico to keep the pressure on and try all the way to the end, even when it looked like it was not possible. 1 up for rosberg in the mental games. unfortunate for lewis, if rosberg was 2 seconds behind him entering the final lap, it might have been different, but rosberg won, he was the one pushing lewis to get that last timed lap in, which led to the team telling lewis to move over if he couldn’t go quicker (ironic as no one was going quicker)

  15. Wow, Vettel, Wow!!! And how did he do it?!! And Nico still beating Ham like a pro! Great job. Well, great qlf. Let’s hope that tomorrow delivers us a great race too.

    I did not watch the Qualifying because I went to Concert, but by looking at the grid this look like a thrilling Qualifying

  17. Great qualifying by Button and K Mag. They show great skill when conditions are tough – as good drivers do.

    Lol gotta love all these Monday-morning quarterbacks.
    Just shut up. It was a crazy session and it caught out several of the top teams like Ferrari, Williams as well as Hamilton.

    Anything can happen. People just love to say “it’s over”. Fools.

  19. I’m a Hamilton fan. It is really hard to take this right now. We support you, and we will continue to support you. I just wish you better luck. At least try and make Rosberg work for this championship. Rosberg is potentially going to be a 2 time champion if the Honda PU is not good enough and Ferrari and Renault do not respond. I’m just stunned.
