Rosberg’s rapture in race of recoveries

Sutil's late-race slump, again caused by not pitting under the final safety car, also saw him passed by the recovering Massa, but was arrested before Ricciardo could take advantage. Paul di Resta, having been sent to the back of the grid for running underweight in qualifying, again made it into the points, having enjoyed a wheel-to-wheel scrap with Hamilton prior to the second safety car, while Nico Hulkenberg snuck almost unnoticed into tenth, adding a rare point to Sauber's tally.

As stealthy as Hulkenberg's rise had been, so was Button's demise, the Briton also struggling on ageing rubber after not stopping late on and plummeting to 13th at the flag. That left the 2009 world champion behind the two Williams cars of Pastor Maldonado and Valtteri Bottas, and only just ahead of Gutierrez. Charles Pic, Jules Bianchi, Max Chilton and Giedo van der Garde all made it to the finish for the two minnow teams, but Grosjean, Perez and Vergne all joined Vettel in retirement after their cars were deemed to have suffered too much damage to continue.

A very gripping finish, but, the tyres situation is really ruining the racing. The high kerb issue I am certain is merely a smoke screen, whilst I am sure it doesn't help, there have never been that many tyre failures at Silverstone or any other race circuit in previous years...
