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.”
