London, Mar 2(ANI): Former Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton has said he is enjoying a productive relationship with new McLaren team-mate and reigning champion Jenson Button.

Hamilton and Button have registered excellent times in recent testing, and will be the biggest threat in the Bahrain Grand Prix, which will take place on March 14.

"We seem to give the exact same feedback, the same feeling in the car, which is a positive for us," The Daily Express quoted Hamilton, as saying.

"Working together is going very well but the first race will give us a real indication of just how different we demand the car," he added.

McLaren will head to the Bahrain Grand Prix as the team to beat after Hamilton posted the quickest time of the Barcelona test on the final day of running in Spain.

Hamilton headed the time sheets after some frantic action, lapping the track in one minute and 20.472 seconds.

He took over running in the MP4-25 from Button for the final day of the Catalunya session and worked on fine-tuning the set-up of the car before completing a series of qualifying simulations and a full race run.

Red Bull's Mark Webber was second fastest, just over two-hundredths of a second slower than Hamilton.

After that came Ferrari's Felipe Massa, Adrian Sutil of Force India, Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel and Mercedes superstar Michael Schumacher - all lapping within 0.3 seconds of Hamilton. (ANI)
