Brawn: The Impossible Formula 1 Story looks epic

It's almost 15 years since Brawn GP did the impossible – time to have Keanu Reeves retell it…

You may have already heard about Brawn: the Impossible Formula 1 story. Such is the might of Disney, the A-list appeal of Keanu Reeves and the couldn’t-make-it-up drama of the 2009 season that the documentary was hardly going to go under the radar. 

Now the official trailer is out, ahead of the series streaming in a couple of weeks; for anyone not already excited about a TV extravaganza dedicated to Brawn GP, this ought to do it. With the past decade and a half effectively dominated by Red Bull and Mercedes-Benz, the documentary will serve as a reminder that the sport can still shock. Maybe there won’t be a year like 2009 again, but with F1’s popularity on the rise, what a time to revisit it. What was achieved back then seemed unbelievable at the time, that transformation from sub-par Honda F1 in 2008 to championship-winning Brawn GP in 2009 – nowadays it feels like a motorsport fairytale. Perfect for Disney, then.

Certainly, the documentary doesn’t want for big names. In addition to Ross Brawn, Rubens Barrichello and Jenson Button, the film features input from Bernie Ecclestone, Christian Horner and even Luca di Montezemolo, who still seems a little aggrieved about how the season panned out. Or perhaps that’s just a bit of clever editing to draw in additional eyeballs – already the trailer has had almost 400,000 views in a day. Whatever the case, The Impossible Formula 1 Story is surely going to be worth a watch; who wouldn’t want to know more about that crazy Brawn GP season? It streams on Hulu in the US or Disney+ here from November 15th, across four parts. The perfect real-life drama, surely, for these cold, dark November nights…
