McLaren newcomer and reigning world champion Jenson Button has admitted that he has not been as fast as his teammate Lewis Hamilton in 2010.

The 30-year-old, who has won two grands prix compared with Hamilton's three so far this season, said his countryman has been better at the wheel of an unbalanced car, and over a single qualifying lap.

"I need a car that is more stable than he does. In that respect Lewis is very strong," Button said in an interview with The Independent.
