Jenson Button refuses to dismiss his chances of winning this season's Formula 1 title.

Jenson Button has insisted that he can still win the Formula 1 title, despite trailing leader Fernando Alonso by 88 points.

The McLaren driver has struggled to produce consistent form after his win in Australia at the start of the season but he claims that he won't be a support act to teammate Lewis Hamilton.

When asked if he would be driving to support Hamilton's title bid, Button told Sky Sports News: "I don't think the team will actually ask me to do that. I personally feel that until I can't win the Championship there is a chance, you really do never know.

"But, I am also a team player and it is very important for the team to win the constructors' championship and that is one of our biggest aims this year."

McLaren are currently second in the constructors' championship.
