F1 sponsorship activation for PETRONAS

Crunch supports PETRONAS with its title sponsorship of Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team. This sees us lead the overall sponsorship strategy and delivery including management of driver activity, content production, trackside and virtual hospitality, social media channels, collateral and merchandise.

Client brief
Crunch was brought on board to provide strategic guidance to PETRONAS to formulate, generate and deploy its Formula One sponsorship strategy, support the brand’s motorsport digital output and presence (social and content), and propose and manage measurement of the sponsorship.

Since the start of the relationship Crunch has become a key part of the sponsorship management hub, troubleshooting problems and delivering activations across the board.

Within the first month of the programme we hosted the PETRONAS President & Group CEO on his visit to the Austrian GP and coordinated and managed a Malaysian media trip to Silverstone.

At the British Grand Prix we announced PETRONAS’ contract renewal with the Formula One team and 2018 quickly developed into a record breaking year in which PETRONAS delivered more value, efficiency and exposure results than ever before.

Since then we have gone on to deliver over 100 programmes for the Malaysian giant, including content creation, media relations, VIP hospitality management and creative design.
