Surely one of the perks of being Keanu Reeves is that you can focus on the passion projects that interest you, which seems to be the inspiration behind his latest project Brawn: The Impossible Formula 1 Story.
Capitalising on his love of racing and in particular, Formula 1 (The Matrix star was spotted at the 2022 Grand Prix), Reeves’ new unscripted Disney+ series promises to focus on one specific real-life story that has all the emotional beats of a big slice of fuel-guzzling movie fiction.
Along the way, he’ll cross paths with some of the biggest names in the world of racing while narrating one of the most unusual and engaging stories in recent Formula 1 history.

What makes this true story even more stunning is the fact that the racing team that went on to secure Brawn their success was bought for just £1 ($1.30).
