Sebastian Vettel may now be a double World Champion, but RedBull Racing’s streak of 15 consecutive pole positions, has come to an end just one pole short of William’s record from 1992-1993. Lewis Hamilton in his McLaren snagged McLaren’s first pole since the Canada last year. The pole will serve as a big boost to Hamilton has been put under the media microscope due to a string of poor results, in particular having four separate collisions with Felipe Massa this season.
Massa, another driver having a tough time will see his spirits lifted, having out qualified his much vaunted team mate Fernando Alonso for the second race in a row.
The real test however is yet to take place, whether Hamilton, Felipe or any of the drivers will enjoy the Korean sunset tomorrow, depends if they can follow the example of Jenson Button and truly take the fight to RedBull Racing.
