Jenson Button believes he can get the better of team-mate Lewis Hamilton at McLaren next year.
The reigning world champion said on the BBC's Top Gear programme on Sunday that he joined team intending to beat Hamilton and retain his world title.
"That's the aim, I wouldn't be doing it if not - it's a massive buzz for me," Button said.
"I've been in Formula 1 for 10 years now, and having the chance to race alongside Lewis at McLaren is something I'm really excited about."
Button attempted another quick lap of Top Gear's test track in a Suzuki Liana, but in slippery conditions he could only set a time two tenths of a second slower than on his previous visit.
