Hamilton realistic on chances
Lewis Hamilton has conceded he faces an uphill task to beat the Red Bulls to victory in Sunday's Korean Grand Prix.
Seven days on from claiming their first front row lock-out of the season at Suzuka, Red Bull repeated the trick at the Korea International Circuit, with Mark Webber snatching pole from Sebastian Vettel.
Hamilton and championship leader Fernando Alonso will line up directly behind them on the grid, but Hamilton is not optimistic of taking them on after qualifying.
"It's going to be very tough to get ahead of them," said Hamilton, who is 42 points behind Alonso.
"But we've put ourselves in as good a position as we could. It was very tough this weekend, clearly these guys have made quite a big step in the last two races and we've just got to keep pushing.
"We're not far off and the race pace for Jenson looked quite good yesterday. I'm just happy I got a clear lap and was able to put it as high up as possible."
