Mark Webber pleased with his second successive Pole position of the season for Korean Grand Prix, In Monaco he was initially set second place in the qualifying, but pole sitter Michael Schumacher’s penalty give offer a pole for Australian.

It is his 11th career Pole in the Formula 1, the Australian expecting Red Bull 1-2 start will gives a perfect Result at Korea. Before the qualifying Webber consistently put fastest lap-time behind his team-mate Vettel, but his final flying lap gain his position to top. He says Turn 11 and 12 absolutely perfect.

“The lap was very good apart from Turn 15,” Webber said. “I got in OK but the exit was not great. Apart from that it worked well because I got [Turns] 11 and 12 absolutely as good as I could, so you take the rough with the smooth. But it was a tight session for all of us – scrubbed tyres, new tyres, Fernando [Alonso] did a reasonable lap on the scrubbed.

“That is the way it is with the Pirellis, things can move around quite a bit. We didn’t get to run anywhere near what we like to in P3 and our information on the option [tyre] was limited,” he said. “There was bit of catch up going on. I had not the best sector two or three in terms of balance issues and other things. That is what we focused on in Q3, so we got the job done.

“I think off the back of Suzuka we improved the car a bit,” he added. “You never get ahead of yourself, but we were optimistic after that, though we knew it wouldn’t be a given.

“We have a handy car and the guys are working very, very hard, no question. That hard work is paying off but we’ll keep focused on ourselves and keep pushing the laptimes down.”
