Jenson Button ready to run Monza gauntlet at the Italian Grand Prix


Jenson Button is ready to withstand the boos from the Ferrari fans if it means him standing on top of the podium in Monza on Sunday.

Button added to his portfolio of victories last Sunday by winning the Belgian Grand Prix to thrust himself back into contention for the Formula One world title.

Asked whether Monza figured on his "to win" list, Button said: "It does, but Monza's a bit different. Winning in Monza must be a great feeling, but it's not one I enjoy standing on the podium at. The tifosi are there to support Ferrari."
