With one hour of practice ahead of qualifying, Nico Rosberg found himself stuck in the garage with gearbox troubles, allowing Lewis Hamilton to take over the top spot as Mercedes continued their Silverstone domination. The grip levels were low due to rain overnight, but the track soon wore in.

The top ten went almost team by team, with Ferrari slotting in behind Mercedes, and Toro Rosso improving their pace once more.

McLaren continued to struggle towards the rear, with Fernando Alonso completing just six laps and finishing 18th overall.
