Lewis Hamilton and his physical trainer, Angela Cullen, ended their partnership prior to the Saudi Arabian GP this season. Cullen made the announcement of her departure from Hamilton’s team, a moment that deeply affected both of them. However, Cullen believed it was the right time for her to embark on new endeavors. Since then, Hamilton has been observed entering the paddock without Cullen accompanying him, which feels unusual given their close connection over the course of seven years.
Hamilton and Cullen have managed to maintain a close bond outside of their professional lives, despite being apart. They consistently offer each other encouragement and make an effort to spend quality time together. This includes taking walks with Hamilton’s dog, Roscoe, and making plans for an exciting skydiving adventure. Additionally, they express their support by leaving comments on one another’s Instagram posts.
Hamilton went to Cappadocia, Turkey, and posted pictures on Instagram during the summer vacation. Cullen, who had previously visited Cappadocia and enjoyed it, left a comment on the post, expressing her affinity for the place and continued support for Hamilton.
Hamilton has faced difficulties in recent seasons, but Cullen has consistently provided support. Prior to the Hungarian GP, she shared a nostalgic photo from their inaugural season in 2016, reminding Hamilton of their shared experiences. When Hamilton secured his 104th pole position, Cullen expressed her congratulations and encouragement through a message on social media.
Even though they are no longer collaborating, Cullen will continue to stand by Hamilton, offering support and motivation.
