Lewis Hamilton performance in qualifying for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix was a result of "absolute determination", according to McLaren Team Principal Martin Whitmarsh.

McLaren team principal Martin Whitmarsh has claimed that Lewis Hamilton is "determined" to record a victory at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Hamilton produced a superb display in qualifying to secure pole position for Sunday's race and Whitmarsh revealed his delight at the Brit's form.

"He's been doing a great job all weekend," Whitmarsh told Sky Sports News. "He came absolutely determined to get a win here. We've underperformed for two or three races, that hurts everyone including Lewis, so I think this weekend it's absolute determination.

"He's been doing a great job and the car's not too bad I think either. But I think Lewis in particular is doing a fantastic job."

Hamilton has agreed to join Mercedes at the end of this season.
