Button seizes crown in Brazil after banner year

It's been 14 years on this day since Jenson Button conquered his F1 world championship title with Brawn GP.

A month before the start of the 2009 season, Jenson Button was staring at the unemployment line, with team and driver still uncertain of their fate for the coming year.

Seven months later, Button was F1's unexpected world champion, having enjoyed an extraordinary campaign during which he won five races in the Mercedes-powered and dominant BGP 001.

Button sealed the title at Interlagos with a P5 finish and with one race to go.

An upcoming Disney+ four-part docu-series will recount the stunning coup pulled off by Brawn GP in 2009 and the forward march to glory enjoyed by Button and the Brackley squad.
