This OTT experience case study will focus on the huge global fan base and established broadcast business that underpins F1’s success. David Bailey, Formula 1’s senior digital research manager, will discuss such topics as its digital priorities, including the launch of F1 TV; its research to identify and segment the F1 audience: meet the “Habituals,” “Purists,” “Sociables,” and “Excitables”; building the case for F1 TV with focus groups, social listening, and user testing — and its per-market pricing and packaging; the determination to make F1 TV the greatest OTT racing spectacle on earth; and how a “fans come first” philosophy reveals itself.
