Jenson Button says that he and teammate Sergio Perez have had 'clear-the-air' talks following their feud at the Bahrain Grand Prix.

McLaren teammates Jenson Button and Sergio Perez have held 'clear-the-air talks' following their collision during the Bahrain Grand Prix on Sunday.

The Mexican's car made contact with the Brit's on several occasions as they jousted for position, which left Perez with a damaged front wing after driving into the back of his colleague.

Button reacted angrily after the race but has since revealed that the duo have patched up their differences.

"Important chat yesterday with Checo Perez to clear the air," Button reported via his twitter account.

"As a team we will move forward and live to fight another day. Roll on Barcelona."

The next Grand Prix takes place in Spain in May.
