Rosberg on top in frantic qualifying

World championship leader Nico Rosberg claims pole position for the British Grand Prix in a rain-affected qualifying session, with Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton only sixth.

Hamilton was fastest with seconds remaining, but made a mistake by aborting his final lap and slipped down the field, allowing Rosberg to take his eighth career pole right at the death.

Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel took second ahead of McLaren's Jenson Button, with both Williams and Ferraris failing to make it out of the first session because of a strategic error.
