He said he thinks all credit goes to Toto Wolff for courageously speaking out about his mental health concerns.
It’s something that’s getting a lot more attention these days, and he believes it’s something that they, in the industry, are acutely aware of and seeking to be proactive about.

Further, he said he’s been fortunate in that he hasn’t had any personal concerns with mental health, but he has had acquaintances who have suffered as a result of mental health issues. Of course, this is a significant matter, and he believes it is crucial to bring it up.

He thinks the ability to speak on it is a “positive thing.”
All credit to Toto, he said, for having the courage to speak up about his sufferings.
Both of them are at the pinnacle of a global sport. And, the Mercedes chief of Formula 1 is committed to making the most of this platform.

High-profile people who pretend everything is fine, but are struggling should speak up. He added, “Simone Biles and Naomi Osaka deserve a lot of respect for how they’ve spoken on this.
At the Tokyo Olympic Games last year, Osaka was very upfront about her mental health. And, gymnast Biles started a global discussion about elite athletes’ mental health.

Biles has to focus on her mental health, she told, after she withdrew from the team final.
She thinks mental health is better prevalent in sports in the present. Sportspersons have to protect their minds and bodies. And, not just go out and do what the world wants them to do.

Lewis Hamilton, Wolff’s driver, also spoke on the topic after he moved on from the previous campaign’s dramatic finish.
I think it was about peeling everything back, taking away the seven-time champion as a racing driver, and going back to the human being really,” said seven-time Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton, as per a report.

For him, it was disconnecting from social media, which can be a useful tool for keeping up with friends and news, but can sometimes be “overbearing.”
So, disconnecting from that, unplugging from the outside world, and being present worked, he said. He was being “really” present every day. And, not thinking about the past. His focus is now on how to “improve” in the future.
