We show you what their role involves in the 24 Hours before they leave for the race. With Formula One race cars to prepare and build and over 30,000 kilos to co-ordinate, pack and load – they’ve got a bit on...

"Every day is different". What a load of bollocks when they are doing the same thing. Poor bastards attempting to justify their existence and job. They are go-fers. Ass lickers.

What an environmentally unfriendly sport. *note to self - don't ever watch F1 racing or support it in any way.

They announced they're gonna be Carbon Neutral by 2030. So, instead of devaluing the sport, you should take steps to improve it.

Likely intentional if they are willing to go through that much work to change parts for set-up. They want you to see the story, not the equipment :)

While those unheard of guys are busting their asses every day, the drivers are sleeping in, doing bs interviews, having affairs, and flying to the next race on a private jet without the team. Thank God they thank the team when the race is over. 😕

Does anyone know what the salary of these mechanics are? At one level it seems to be specialised but there's also a lot of gophering and F1 teams probably aren't short of applicants

dam camera man sucks. FFS out of focus all the time
Jorge Lourenço (8 months ago)
@RoWdY The 1 i noticed they do it on purpose in the factory, so they dont leak information, but in the other hand, in their home´s dont belive they have many secrets to leak, no need to keep it out of focus mate.
RoWdY The 1 (8 months ago)
Jorge Lourenço they do it on purpose, so that your not fixated on what they have, every part of that car and the job on that car is a secret and they want to keep it that way

I guess so many of us has forgotten the word sportmanship and no doubt thats explained why Formula 1 racing is by far the most prestige embodies a solid structure of teamwork. Just about everyone in a team has their role. A noble trait of recognition in governing a team to win the race in the track.

Americans are not this structured and organized. No wonder they struggle to have teams in f1. Gene Haas has his hands full for sure.

So the only time you can go home to see family are during the 2 week race breaks? And even then I doubt those are all allowed.

Guys, it is "for *an F1* race weekend". It would have to be "for *a Formula 1* race weekend" in order to use *a* instead of *an* . :-)
Erik Grimsmo (1 year ago)
I love how REAL this film is. The honesty and emotion from the guys makes for a really good feel for what it's like to work on the team. It's hard work that demands a lot from life, but provides a lot of pride and fulfillment.

Anybody know Ole Schacks (the race team mechanics) watch. It’s black and he’s wearing it throughout the video. Thanks

08:47 who has a Danish passport? 😂
Thomas Drewel (1 year ago)
Ole has the toughest job. If the car breaks down he takes all the blame. If it runs good and they win the race. The driver gets the credit. Poor Ole.
Clem H Fandango (1 year ago)
I believe he was just putting all the pieces together for the front of the cockpit at the factory for shipping reasons. The teams reassemble the whole car on Thursday and run diagnostic tests in the garage to make sure everything is working; if Ole fucked up something, the mechanics at the track will fix it.

@DaX It does matter. Competition is what breeds innovation. You'd be surprised how much of the technology we use everyday is derived from F1. There's a few good videos about it if you're curious.
GloomGaiGar (2 years ago)
Dear camera man. If you can't focus properly with shallow depth of field, don't do it. Might as well keep everything in focus. It's not a indie film.
