The World Championship leader led at silverstone only for his Mercedes-Benz F1 W05 Hybrid to develop a problem following his first pitstop. “I ’m very confident that I would have won the race,” he said in his post-race media session. “The first problem started around lap 20 after the pitstop and then it just got worse from there. “I was trying to think if there was some safe setting we could put it in or just drive in a completely different way just to get to the end of the race. Okay I would let lewis go, but it would still be valuable points if I could get to the end. But there was nothing that I could do or that they could suggest to save the gearbox. “There was one thing before the start or just after which was weird and then after that it sort of got worse and worse from lap 20 onwards. It resulted in some neutral occasions so I had to pull the clutch and go again. Then it just got worse and worse from there. “My mentality changed from ‘let’s stop racing lewis and let’s just try and get this thing to the end somehow because I have such a pace advantage I can do some pretty radical things to try and keep this gearbox alive’. But there wasn’t really anything that could be done from their opinion [in the garage].” Rosberg still leads the Drivers’ Championship but his retirement means that the gap between the two men in silver has been cut to four points.
