4 guys sitting and chatting about their mental health in a sporting environment. Thanks very much for this.🧡
Mclaren feels so special because they're more like a family than a team and that's very rare to see
Mad respect for these guys. Not only for enduring everything during quarantine but also speaking up about their experiences!

Dude, being raised a Ferrari fan, I HATED McLaren growing up, but y’all are becoming my favorite team very quickly. Thank you for this kind of open and honest content. Keep up the stellar work, on and off the track! 🧡

We all love Carlos and Lando. They bring so much life, love and attention to McLaren. I'm glad we get to hear from these boys too. Glad that they are all well and safe now.
I'm watching this the day I get out of my 14-day quarantine in Malaysia. I understand the feeling of being trapped in a box, I haven't been allowed to leave my hotel room for 14 days and now I get out in 2 hours and 19 minutes, thanks for making me not feel alone

Such a good video, and really interesting to hear about it from your point of view rather than the press perspective. Thank you for filming and thank you to the team for sharing. An important message to everyone, as we are still in the same boat, months on.

I’m in Mexico and I can relate to them now, even they’re talking about months ago, because in my country COVID has not been controlled yet, but people need to continue with their lives. I feel really paranoid every time I have to walk out of my home. Thank you for sharing, this content is amazing. 👏🏻🧡
That’s an amazing group of guys right there. The epitome of a team mentality. Bravo boys.

And uni students are having to do this everywhere this really highlights how horrible it is being stuck in your room for 14 days
Lori Cairns
Lori Cairns:
Thank you for sharing the ups and downs of going through quarantine in a hotel room so far from home. It helps to hear how others coped. I lost myself in music, as well.
Good luck in Germany and beyond. You have fully converted this life long Ferrari fan. Keep these awesome videos coming. ❤❤❤
David Kuhl
David Kuhl:
Amazing insight and glad to see you all came out of it healthy and maybe even stronger!
I really, really loved this video! Just regular guys (with amazing jobs, of course) talking about their difficulties during lockdown, being open and maybe showing just a bit of their soft side. So good. Great team, and great cause to support!

Huge respect to them ! That was quite difficult moments...
And thanks for making this video, it's very interesting...
What I see here is 4 friends chatting but there are actually on their work place and I envy them so much, what a particular job of travelling around the world, preparing cars for each races and having a good work atmosphere with nice people.
Really nice !

Such a good story on mental health especially what its like during quarantine.
This was fantastic. Keep up the good work.
Can't wait to work for McLaren, I love this enviorment
Alessia Orsini
Alessia Orsini:
It was very touching to hear one of the guys was talking about being the happiest just from seeing a postcard from his kids (9:06). Reminds you of all the little lives and things that revolve around this massive industry that is F1.
Grannie Annie
Grannie Annie:
A well timed video. So many places are going back into quarantine ironically including Melbourne (well hopefully they'll have restrictions eased more and more). It shows how different team members coped. From walking 20ks a day to learning how to play a keyboard to PlayStation. Mental health issues are huge right now, thank you McLaren for showing some coping strategies.
This is absolutely fantastic. We've had the conversation about mental health in the Covid situation. It's great to see a company as big as McLaren to get the word out. It seems to me that media in general does not talk about this issue.

Glad they pulled through well. The scariest part of it all at that time in March was there was not much detail about the pandemic, constantly thinking about that can be quite menacing indeed.
5:46 That's Aussie internet for ya
Absolutely brilliant segment guys, well done. It's great to hear from those behind the scenes as we spend so much time concentrating on the drivers, its sometimes easy to forget the human element of everyone else involved.
It's also amazing how different city's and countries have been affected by this pandemic. I'm a single father that lives in Melbourne and had tickets for myself and my 13 year old boy to attend this years Melbourne GP. The Wednesday leading up to the GP was my last shift at work and have not been able to work since, as my industry has been in shutdown and still hasn't been allowed to reopen and we have been in lockdown pretty much since that week also. This coming Monday will be the first day that my boy is actually allowed back to school, whilst this weekend will be the 11th round of the F1 calendar in this bizarre year that is 2020. Please don't take this as a sob story as it's not intended for that, as I've always taught my boy that there are so many people in the world that are far worse off than we are. And honestly having practice 1, 2 and 3, qualifying and a race to look forward to pretty much every week as well as F2 and F3 and channels like this has been a huge help to get us through this, and lets not forget that some of these guys and girls probably haven't been home to see there family's much or at all since the first race in Austria at the start of July, in which I truly thank you for.
Must be hard to Live through that situation, thankfully they are still here...

Great video, amazing insights into what the team went through and great to see men, especially in a sports environment, talking openly about mental health issues, inspirational stuff with a great message for all of us.
this video is amazing as you get sense of perspective to how it is quarantining like luckily i don't believe i have had it yet i have been badly ill but i don't think it was covid but i believe my brother did have it as he was struggling to breath and couldn't do anything as he was so weak and it wasn't just a sore throat he was in a real state

Rhys Benjamin:
The point about the television is a very important point about the role of the media in the pandemic. All they have done is be incredibly negative the whole way through. You need to look for the positives in the figures to keep your sanity in check and the TV doesn’t let you do that.
