McLaren team boss Martin Whitmarsh is hoping that Lewis Hamilton's spirits will be lifted after he achieved his first pole of the season.
The McLaren driver, whose form has slumped in recent weeks leading to wide-spread criticism, put an end to Red Bull's run of pole positions in Korea on Saturday.
Hamilton crossed the line with a 1:35.820 to beat newly-crowned World Champ Sebastian Vettel to the coveted grid slot while Jenson Button was third.
And although Whitmarsh admits pole position is not the main goal, he believes it will at least have given Hamilton a bit of a boost.
"We're here to win races, but pole position feels good if you haven't had it for a long time," he told the BBC.
"Tomorrow is another day, and it will be a long race - ourselves, Red Bull, Ferrari, who knows, but both our guys fancy their chances.
"I'm sure this will cheer Lewis up, not as much as a race win would, but to be on pole, any driver wants that. Regarding the race, it's a little bit of an unknown how the tyres will survive tomorrow."
