Button hails his McLaren dream team

London: Formula One 2009 champion Jenson Button believes he is winning the battle for hearts and minds at McLaren with team mate Lewis Hamilton.

Button made it three podiums in a row with second place to F1 championship leader Sebastian Vettel in Italy on Sunday.

The Frome flier, 31, said: "I`m driving better than ever and I`m really working well with the people within the team.”

A daily quoted him, as saying: "I took my engineers and mechanics out for dinner on Saturday night. It is not for a competitive edge over Lewis` side of the garage, it was to pay them back for all their hard work."

Button, nine points ahead of Hamilton, added: "It`s fun racing with Lewis as we push each other."
