The extraordinary win of Brawn GP in the 2009 Formula 1 has become the subject of a new Disney Plus documentary series.


Presented by Keanu Reeves, the actor will explore how underdog team Brawn won the 2009 Formula 1 World Championship, despite being outmanned and outstaffed by all of their competitors.

Featuring some of the biggest names in the world of racing, including those who were actually there during the historic moment, Reeves will take a look at archival footage to bring the moment back to life.

"I am honoured to be a part of telling the incredible story of Brawn GP and their remarkable F1 Championship Season in 2009 with those who lived it in this four-part documentary series," said Reeves ahead of the show's launch.

"It has been great to have the support of Disney Plus and producing partnership with North One to bring this story to life."
