Angela Cullen, a part of the Hintsa Performance Company, started working as Hamilton’s performance coach in 2016. Since then, they have seen mega successes and failures on their journey in F1. She has had a significant contribution to Hamilton’s journey, pushing him to do his best to win multiple WDCs with Mercedes. Though she no longer works with him, she has nothing but respect and pride for him.

Cullen is currently in Bali and embracing the peaceful environment that it offers. The Instagram page angelacullenworld shared a throwback photo of Hamilton and Cullen together, from 2019. She reshared the same post on her story, captioning it “Power of good vibes. Let’s go.. #teamlh“.
