Brawn GP was a Formula One constructor, created in 2009 by a management buyout of Honda Racing F1 Team led by Ross Brawn, after Honda announced their withdrawal from the sport in late 2008. The team only competed in the 2009 FIA Formula One World Championship, with drivers Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello.
On its racing debut, the season-opening 2009 Australian Grand Prix, the team took pole position and 2nd place in qualifying and went on to finish first and second in the race. Button won six of the first seven races of the season and on 18 October at the Brazilian Grand Prix, he secured the 2009 Drivers' Championship and the team won the Constructors' Championship. Barrichello won twice and finished third in the Drivers' Championship. The team won eight of the season's seventeen races, and by winning both titles in its only year of competition became the first to achieve a 100% championship success rate.
