2009 Formula 1 World Champion Jenson Button has announced a documentary is set to air on Disney+ about his memorable title winning campaign.

The 2009 season has gone down in F1, and motorsport folklore after Ross Brawn brought the remains of the Honda team for one pound sterling and guided it to the Constructors' Championship and Button to the Drivers' title.

Brawn shoehorned in a Mercedes engine and gearbox into a car originally designed for Honda gubbins, and promptly won six of the first seven races through Button.

At the Brazilian Grand Prix, Button and Brawn claimed the two titles, having fended off a late charge by Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull.

The team was sold ahead of the 2010 campaign to Mercedes.

The series will be entitled "Brawn: The One Pound Formula 1 Team."

Button did not say when the series would release, but added it would be "coming soon."
