  • Lewis today took his 55th career pole position – his fourth at Silverstone and sixth of the 2016 season so far.
  • Nico will start tomorrow’s British Grand Prix from P2, completing a fifth Silver Arrows front row lockout of the season so far.
  • Both Lewis and Nico eclipsed the previous circuit record at this configuration of the Silverstone Circuit (1:29.607) set by Lewis in 2013.
  • Both drivers completed a single run in Q1, the same again in Q2 and two runs apiece in Q3, using soft compound tyres throughout.

Nico Rosberg: The team has given us an incredible car. It really was a pleasure to drive out there today – especially through these spectacular highspeed corners where it’s just awesome. It’s like the car is on rails, which is just what you want as a driver, so a big thank you to everyone for that. It wasn’t my day out there today – but congratulations to Lewis, who did an awesome job. Tomorrow is the day and it’s all to play for and it will be a great battle between Lewis and me. There are some chances at the start and it will be interesting how the tyre degradation will influence the strategy. Recently I’ve had good starts, so I’m looking forward to it. I’ll definitely still be pushing for the win.
