More than 100,000 people flocked to Trafalgar Square and the surrounding area for F1 Live. This spectacular event brought the sights, sounds, smells and high-octane energy of F1 to the centre of London in the summer of 2017. It was the first time that all 10 teams had come together outside of a race weekend for an event. F1 Live combined an educational showcase, a concert with Little Mix and the Kaiser Chiefs, and a F1 display along Whitehall.

What we did
We supported the event delivery by working with organisers to develop a concept which brought new and old fans closer together when F1 Live took place in the capital for the first time. We assisted with complex processes – from road closures to working with Westminster City Council – to help make this event a great success.
We played a central role in the communications which were challenging given the event’s expected popularity and the unique and complex nature of all 10 teams driving during mid-week road closures in central London. It created a global conversation and benefitted Londoners of all ages with free-to-access content.
