Hamilton: “Tomorrow’s the day that counts”

No smiles from Hamilton after taking pole position

Lewis Hamilton kept his emotions in check after securing his first pole position of 2011 in Korea.

Hamilton has endured several torrid weekends this year but bounced back to become the first driver to take pole position this year in something other than a Red Bull.

Hamilton didn’t respond after being told he was on pole position and walked calmly from his car after returning to the pits.

Asked about his undemonstrative show in the press conference he said: “No, I’m happy. I’m very happy.

“Happy to be here and very proud of what the team have been able to achieve over the course of the last few races and for Jenson to have won the last race. And for us to be on the front two rows again and the only ones who can beat Red Bull I’m very, very happy about it.

He added: “It’s just tomorrow’s the day that really counts.”

    Good on you Lewis for the pole today ……probably sad because he knows that he will chew right through his rubbers tomorrow and tat JB will once again walk away with the glory. I’ m putting money on Massa taking out Ham tomorrow …….god knows its long been overdue !!! I’m not a Massa fan – but somethings just need to be taken care of !!!

    Why will he celebrate a pole position despite all the criticism he had faced this year?
    His action only shows a very strong determination to win the race.
    I wish him all the best in the race.
    NO PUNCTURE,NO COLLISION BUT A DOMINANT RACE.

    The understated, controlled radio made a refreshing change to the normal over the top “that’s what i’m talkin’ about” Vettel celebration. Lewis and mclaren sound as if they realise its tomorrow that really counts, not today and its not all about about creating the right image for a certain brand of energy drink.

    Hopefully Hamilton will get a good a good start and he’ll have no one around him to try and overtake or be overtaken by and he might avoid some controversy for a change.
