Button admits conquering British GP conundrum would bring tears to eyes

The Brit said a win at British Grand Prix would mean as much as winning his world championship in 2009.

History books show that despite 12 years of trying, 56,214 kilometers of racing, 216 Grands Prix, 13 wins and one glorious world title, Button has not led a single lap of his favourite race. Although, he has finished fourth twice and fifth twice but never even made it to the podium, let alone won.

"If I win at Silverstone, I will get really emotional. It will mean so much more than anywhere else," The Daily Mirror quoted Button, as saying.

"That was what it felt like winning the world championship after so many years trying to get the right car and the right team. It meant so much. I'm not sure I'll be blubbing like a girl - but I will be emotional," he added.

"It's later on after a couple of drinks as it starts to hit you that it really sinks in and you get emotional - as it did at Suzuka last year," he said.
