A second victory in three races for Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg was overshadowed at the British Grand Prix as a number of cars suffered blown tyres.

The German, pictured, held off a late challenge from Mark Webber to take the chequered flag, but the six tyre mishaps left the drivers threatening a boycott.
