‘It’s so annoying’ – McLaren sisters Leena and Teena Gade open up on life as women in Formula One industry

LEENA and Teena Gade have opened on what life in motorsport is like for women. Today marks International Women in Engineering Day, with Leena and Teena both working for McLaren. “It’s a little bit frustrating that people focus on that, rather than the engineering side of things, which is far more interesting and far more exciting.”. “There are very few females in engineering, and in most sports, so it’s a natural question for people to ask. She then continued: “I think things have changed a lot since we got into motorsport, got interested in engineering.”. A report by Engineering UK published earlier this year claims that the number of women working in the industry has increased over the last 12 years.
