This is a very very brief history of the life of a F1 Team.
December 2008, Honda pulled out of Formula 1. Things looked decidedly bad for the team members. A last minute deal with Ross Brawn and his backers meant the team was saved. Brawn GP was born!
Roll on 10 months to October 18th 2009 and Jenson Button of Brawn GP is now Formula 1 World Champion and Brawn GP win the Formula 1 Constructors Championship.
What a difference a year makes!
