McLaren driver Jenson Button says that it would be "massive" if the team could end their 12-year wait for the F1 constructors' crown this year.

McLaren's Jenson Button has said that the team are focused on putting an end to a 12-year wait for the Formula 1 constructors' title.

Despite the fact that the British team are one of the biggest names in the sport, they have not claimed the team title since 1998.

"For the guys who have been here that whole period of time (since the last constructors' title win), not winning it has been difficult," said Button.

"Obviously they lost all their points one season when they would otherwise have won it, so it's more difficult for them than it has been for me because this is only my third year with the team.

"I know it would really mean a lot to the guys in the garage who put the cars together, and all those back at the factory, to finally win the constructors'. It would be massive."

The English team are second in this year's standings, 29 points adrift of Red Bull.
