You could see them useing headphones at the stands. It's seems to be closed design to attenuate the exterior noise...

I read somewhere once it was in the region of 130 dB up close. Way louder than I ever want to hear.

I don't know about Mclaren, but Ferrari uses Sennheiser's HMEC 460 or HME 110 aviation headsets, or the predecessors or variations to those models.

German engineering in tha house, ya?!

It's all about who the sponsor is. Some get Kenwood, others get Sennheiser or Bose.
