THE ASK: Attract a millennial audience to Formula 1 on television.
THE ANSWER: We’d already teamed them up with presenters Greg Foot and Jimmy De Ville to create a series of online films explaining the incredible engineering breakthroughs that make Honda F1 engines tick. Explosive (literally) and full of wowing facts, it seemed perfect material to be shared with a television audience.
Given that Channel 4 broadcasts Formula 1, it was the obvious place to host some Honda Lab material. We spoke to our television contacts, and voilà – Greg and Jimmy were being interviewed by Tim Lovejoy and Simon Rimmer on Sunday Brunch, and a cut down of the most exciting bits from the online series was played to show off the Honda F1 engine in a fun and engaging way. Honda Racing F1 was incredibly pleased with this exceptional interaction with an entirely different audience.
