London, Apr 20(ANI): Reigning Formula One champion Jenson Button reckons he is having a fantastic time following his incredible start to the season.

Button is at the top of the drivers' standings after leading home team-mate Lewis Hamilton in the Chinese Grand Prix on Sunday, and currently has a 10-point lead over second placed Mercedes' Nico Rosberg.

"This is the best time of my life, no doubt. I'm the world champion and I've got the confidence that brings. I'm driving like a world champion," The Sun quoted Button, as saying.

"I won three of the first four last year and now two out of four this season. That's not a bad position to be in. Whatever happens in my career at McLaren now I think I've had a lot of fun already," he added.

Meanwhile, Hamilton, who is at third place in the driver's standings, denied reports that there were some problems between the two Brits.

"There are no issues. The good thing with me and Jenson is that we clearly want to beat each other," Hamilton said.

"I've done it the hard way and he's had the easier way. I've had great races but he has taken the right decisions and the easier route," he added. (ANI)
