Lewis Hamilton and Angela Cullen share an inseparable bond that cannot be put into words. The Kiwi trainer has done so much for the Briton over the years ever since she joined Mercedes in 2015. Tagging along with the Mercedes driver everywhere on the race weekends. Unfortunately, Angela Cullen decided to leave Hamilton’s side earlier this season, probably when the 7X Champion needed her the most.

The split must’ve been hard not on Lewis but also for Cullen. After all, Mercedes was her home for 7+ years. Nevertheless, Hamilton expressed how the Kiwi is still in contact with him and wishes him the best before the races. Continuing to support Hamilton and embracing the choices made by her, she recently posted an image of herself surfing. The Kiwi explained how surfing had been the greatest challenge faced by her and praised Lewis Hamilton for making it look easy. 

Cullen further explained how she’s committed to this passion and is taking small steps toward becoming a better surfer. Lewis Hamilton is a great surfer. The Briton is as passionate about surfing as Cullen is and is always up for riding the waves. Hamilton has been spotted surfing in Australia, Malibu, and Southeastern France. Looks like the Mercedes driver did have a lot of influence on Angela Cullen during her time on the team. 

Angela Cullen however seems to have moved on from the heartbreak. The Kiwi trainer has posted multiple pictures of herself on Instagram trying different things. She also seems to have found a new crew to work with as we speak.
