McClaren's Jenson Button hopes that he can make it two wins in the space of a week at the Italian Grand Prix.

McClaren's Jenson Button has revealed his desire to win this week's Italian Grand Prix at Monza.

Button led from start to finish to win Sunday's Belgian Grand Prix, and he is hoping he can take the momentum from that victory to better the second-place finishes he has achieved at the last three Italian Grands Prix.

Button told Sky Sports News: "We need to get our heads down and find a balance over the weekend because it would be great to fight for a win here.

"The last three times I have raced here, I have been second, so it would be nice to go one step higher this weekend."

Button is currently sixth in the Formula 1 drivers' standings.
