The Impossible Formula 1 Story’ — What to Expect

Start your engines, the underdogs of Formula 1 are racing for the win! Hulu’s four-part documentary series Brawn: The Impossible Formula 1 Story is the true story of how the Brawn GP Formula 1 Team rose from the ashes and won the World Championship in 2009. Hosted and executive produced by Keanu Reeves, an avid fan of automobiles and F1 himself, the team’s shocking achievement is the stuff of fairytales: completely understaffed, underfinanced, and independent, Brawn GP defied the odds and snagged the championship title after going up against racing’s biggest titans. This remarkable feat unfolded after managing director Ross Brawn purchased the team for only £1.

2009 was a wild ride for the world of Formula One. From the infamous Renault Crashgate scandal at the Singapore Grand Prix to the rise of Red Bull Racing thanks to Sebastian Vettel, no other achievement could even compare to the emergence of Brawn GP. The unscripted documentary series features some of the most influential faces of Formula 1, including Brawn, Jenson Button, Nick Fry, Rubens Barrichello, and Christian Horner. Buckle up, because the Brawn GP journey is one heck of a ride. Read on for everything we know so far about Brawn: The Impossible Formula 1 Story.

Bursting onto the global stage with the sensational success of The Matrix Resurrections and the blockbuster John Wick franchise, Keanu Reeves takes the wheel as the host of the upcoming docuseries. A seasoned actor in the realm of action, Reeves is well-known for his penchant for all things that require adrenaline. Whether it’s performing his own stunts and getting involved in hand-to-hand combat, it only makes sense that Reeves has an affinity for speed, a sentiment hardly unexpected for someone who once starred in the high-octane film, Speed. Speaking to Variety, Reeves shared his excitement in regards to his involvement in Brawn: The Impossible Formula 1 Story:

“It’s been really great to be able to learn more about what was going on in Formula One that year. It wasn’t just the cars, new regulations, FOTA [the Formula One Teams Association], breakaway series. I mean there was just so much happening in Formula One at that time. The world of Formula One was just extraordinary. I mean, it’s always extraordinary, but in that year with Brawn GP I think something really special happened.”

Joining Reeves is none other than the man responsible for the rise of Brawn GP: Ross Brawn. As team principal, Brawn led a management buyout to rescue the Honda Racing F1 Team from the brink of withdrawal from Formula One, driven by financial challenges. This strategic move marks the stepping stone in the team’s transformation and renaming as Brawn GP for the 2009 season.

Other faces appearing in the series include Jenson Button, whose career highlights include winning the Formula One World Championship in 2009 while driving for Brawn GP. Nick Fry, known for his time as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Brawn GP team, makes an appearance in the documentary. Rubens Barrichello, who drove for the Brawn GP team alongside Button, as well as Christian Horner, an influential figure in the Constructors’ and Drivers’ Championships, are set to pop up in the series as well.
