Keanu Reeves' Formula 1 documentary will be released on Disney+ and Hulu on 15 November.

The four-part documentary series is titled Brawn: An Impossible Formula 1 Story.

It tells the remarkable story of the 2009 F1 season in which Jenson Button won the Drivers' Championship and Brawn GP won the Constructors' Championship despite being rank outsiders before the campaign got underway.

After Honda F1 decided to bow out of Formula 1 racing in 2009, former team principal Ross Brawn bought a 54% stake in the team and changed the name to Brawn GP.

Brawn GP managed to retain the services of experienced drivers Button and Rubens Barrichello, who would prove vital in the Constructors' Championship success.

Throughout the campaign, Brawn GP struggled financially against the more established teams, but received a major boost when it received investment from Richard Branson and Swiss brokers MIG Investments.

Brawn GP won the title in its debut season.

Why is Reeves making a F1 documentary?

Reeves previously attended the British Grand Prix and explained why he decided to bring the story of Brawn GP to our screens.

"From the outside, a friend of mine was telling this story and I was so struck by it," he told Sky Sports.

"We were like 'Well let's tell that story' and it has been really great to be able to learn more from what was going on in F1 back in the day, there was just so much happening in F1. Just the world of F1 was extraordinary, it always is but that year with Brawn I think something special happened."

The Matrix star admitted to being thrilled to get so close to the action at Silverstone qualifying.

"It was wet but it was thrilling," he said.

"It was absolutely amazing to be that close. Silverstone and rain, perfect. I think being that close to it, just seeing the speed and the way that they're going at the turns and exiting the turns is something unbelievable.

"We are being hosted by Ross Brawn, he has been a legend and is such an amazing person so it was really cool to meet him and spend some time with him, he offered us the chance to be here. That's what we are going to try and do, we are going to tell that amazing, remarkable story."
