Cullen accompanied Hamilton everywhere, from the media press conference to the end of the race, handling the Briton’s stuff for him. However, during the early parts of the season, Cullen announced that she’ll be splitting ways with Hamilton to follow different passions and goals in her life.

By the looks of it, it seems like Angela Cullen is finally over the sorrows of the split with the team as she was seen enjoying moments with her new crew. Cullen recently posted a photo on Instagram where she is seen with the crew of Bali Training Centre. The Kiwi has been in Bali for some time now as she started working with the Bali Training Group. The caption to the photo posted with the crew is “Monday Hustle. Some days you need your crew to get you thru. Find your Tribe🤍🙏🏻🦋 @bali_training_centre”

The caption portrayed that Angela Cullen has finally started relying upon her new crew, just like Lewis Hamilton relied on Cullen.

Nevertheless, Angela has continued his support for Lewis Hamilton while enjoying other things in life.
