“Going through the highs and lows of the sport, on top of being away from the family, you do dip through moments of feeling lonely. I try to keep positive and use this time to self-evaluate, but I think it is important to talk to your friends, stay connected with your team and be open,” stated Daniel Ricciardo, the man with the brightest smile on the grid. 

The fans have replied with wholesome comments towards the team and drivers, and people in general. Some have stated that we tend to forget that the people in the limelight themselves go through these feelings.

Fans show immense support on the issue with brightening Tweets.


F1 and McLaren fans have shown immense support, some of the Tweets even included personal stories, and some thanked McLaren for following up on the stigma of mental health that has been created in the society. 

It is due to teams like McLaren that people tend to think about the problems that are suppressed by the society, and it is a good job what McLaren have done. 

McLaren currently stand 4th in the constructors’ with 46 points after a rough start of the year, and Lando’s unfortunate crash in the Miami Grand Prix.
