Brawn GP's commercial director David Butler has left the former Honda team, Marketing Magazine reported on Wednesday.

A reason for his departure is not known, but the timing is noteworthy given the influx of commercial interest in the Brackley outfit following its management buyout, launch of a blank livery and remarkable competitive success.

His replacement is Frenchman Bastien Hibon, formerly creative and communications director for Friends of the Earth, who worked on the climate change campaign The Big Ask.

He also previously worked for a PR company involved with Honda's original F1 guise, British American Racing.
