Congratulations to Nico Rosberg as well as the Mercedes AMG team for a strong showing and victory at the Silverstone Grand Prix in Great Britain. Mercedes was in position for a great result due to strong qualifying putting Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton at the front of the grid for the start of the race
. When the dust settled it was Nico Rosberg standing on the top of the podium with the victory with Hamilton contributing valuable points finishing in fourth place.
Hamilton led the race but suffered a tire blowout. There were several tire blowouts during the race. Sebastian Vettel was able to take advantage but was forced to retire with a transmission failure opening the door for Nico Rosberg who did not disappoint. Great work by the pit crew contributed greatly.
