Nico Rosberg takes the pole for the British Grand Prix  in a rain-affected qualifying which left Lewis Hamilton only sixth.

Nico_Rosberg-British_GP-2014-F01Hamilton the fastest with just seconds remaining as he decided to abort his final lap.

Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel took second ahead of McLaren’s Jenson Button, Force India’s Nico Hulkenberg and McLaren’s Kevin Magnussen.

Both Williams and Ferraris failed to make it out of the first session after both teams waited a little to much to send their drivers out.

Mercedes executive director Paddy Lowe said Hamilton had decided to abort his final lap because he was down after the first two sectors which tuned out to be a big mistake because the last sector was drier and the drivers found huge time gains there.
