Nico Rosberg praises "great team effort"

Nico Rosberg hails a "great team effort" from Mercedes after claiming pole position at the British Grand Prix.

Nico Rosberg has said that Mercedes gave a "great team effort" to secure pole position for this weekend's British Grand Prix.

The championship leader posted the quickest time late on in a rain-affected session at Silverstone this afternoon.

Speaking at a press conference after qualifying, the German said: "It was definitely quite crazy, certainly in first qualifying it was and last qualifying also.

"The tyres were still drying out so we lost time on the out lap. We sat in the garage and eventually came to the conclusion that we might as well go out out and have a look.

"Then it seemed like it was worth it because the last part of the lap was very dry. It was a great team effort."

Rosberg will start alongside Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel, while McLaren's Jenson Button completes the top three.
