Video: Was Brawn GP’s 2009 Formula 1 success really a fairytale?

It’s been a decade since Brawn GP rose from the ashes of Honda and started its remarkable journey towards a Formula 1 world championship double.

Jenson Button took the drivers’ title and the team in Ross Brawn’s name managed to fend off the traditional giants on the grid. But was it really David slaying Goliath, as it is often remembered?

Stuart Codling presents his argument that the Brawn BGP 001 was the result of hundreds of millions of dollars of development while the team was still Honda in 2008, while Edd Straw counters that the human side of the story cannot be overlooked.
