For all the tyre talk, there will be a Pirelli briefing after the podium so we should get some answers quickly. Ross Brawn doesn't think Rosberg would have got Vettel without the problem but does think Hamilton had the race under control before his puncture. Swings and roundabouts.

Rosberg jumps out of the car and celebrates with his team. Lots of respect between Webber and Alonso in parc ferme too. It's a great drive from Rosberg but it would have been fitting if Webber had won that one.

In the driver room before the podium Rosberg says "Wow that's crazy stuff. That's crazy stuff". Webber says he "just missed the DRS" bit at the first zone on the final lap. Alonso says he was lucky not to get a puncture.

Alonso and Webber talking about their final pit stops and Alonso climbing through the field late on.

The crowd pours out on to the circuit and the top three come out on to the podium for the anthems. We'll bring you a snippet of what they have to say after the trophies are handed out.

Piyush asks: "Why didn't Sutil changed his tyres during the safety car period?That has costed him the podium." - Sutil had already lost out and by staying out got ahead of Webber and Alonso again; it was a gamble that didn't pay off, but he wasn't going to overtake them on pace on track.

Webber throws his Pirelli cap in to the crowd as Damon Hill comes out to interview the drivers...

Rosberg: "It's a very special day and what makes it more special is that our factory is so close. This is for everybody who are my team colleagues ... this one is for all of you"

"With Lewis I feel sorry - for all the British fans it would have been fantastic. When Sebastian stopped I won't lie I wasn't disappointed with that one."

Webber: "I didn't have a clue what happened off the line ... the I think Grosjean took the front wing at the first corner, but the race got under way at the first stop. It was a clean race, good strategy - I would have liked a few more laps at Nico but he was quick and deserved the win. It's my last time here for Formula One in front of the British fans so thank you."

Alonso: "It was a good race for us ... with Sebastian's problem we're lucky to gain some points. Mixed feelings, happy for the points, we reduce the lap, but the pace we saw this weekend is not good enough. There were some other Sunday's when I lost points but was more optimistic, today we gained points but we have a lot of work to do."

Siddhesh emails in: "Talking of Deserving, Hamilton deserved a podium for his superb drive. Safe to say that Merc matched Redbull on pace today? Hamilton was very quick early on, and this will only increase the murmurs on the advantage Merc gained from their tyre test"

As Rosberg says he's really looking forward to Germany it's time for us to sign off. Thank you so much for joining us and I hope we translated some of the chaos and excitement for you! I'm prepping to fly to Germany this week so make sure you join us for the German Grand Prix next weekend. Bye for now.

Lap 52

Webber 1.1s behind Rosberg - I don't think he can close that. Hang on, 0.4s in the first sector, he's within DRS range. Hamilton right behind Alonso too. Massa passes Sutil for P6 as Grosjean retires.

Rosberg looks like he's got it ...

NICO ROSBERG WINS THE BRITISH GRAND PRIX! What a race. He holds off Webber by 0.7s, while Hamilton is fourth just 0.6s behind Alonso. Raikkonen comes home fifth and that's a fair few points taken out of Vettel's lead after his retirement.

Button dropped like a stone late on and ends up 13th. Webber set the fastest lap on the final lap.

Lap 51

Fastest lap from Webber. 1.3s the gap with two laps to go. Hamilton looks at Raikkonen in to Brooklands but doesn't make a move. Hamilton quicker through the middle sector and uses DRS to pass Raikkonen for fourth. Can he challenge Alonso?

Lap 50

Fastest lap from Rosberg but the gap is only 1.4s to Webber. Raikkonen has Alonso and Hamilton closing in quickly. Webber is still pushing so hard. Raikkonen has Alonso in DRS range and through the Ferrari goes! Up to third for Alonso. Hamilton sniffing around now.

Lap 49

Sorry, missed a lap in the excitement. Alonso is through past Sutil and so is Hamilton at Turn 3. Amazing stuff. Alonso and Hamilton set off after Raikkonen.

Rosberg leads by 1.3s and puts the hammer down. Two purple sectors, he doesn't want Webber to snatch this. Alonso closing on a slow Raikkonen, while Massa attacks Sutil for fifth.

Lap 48

Alonso passes Ricciardo at Club and Hamilton comes through too! He's up to sixth. Webber all over the back of Raikkonen and Rosberg is only a second up the road! WEBBER'S THROUGH at Copse. He sets off after Rosberg... This is brilliant!
