The two title rivals are now separated with an 8-point difference with two races to go. This hunt for the title is expected to go down to the wire. However, the Mercedes driver believes he would not have achieved so much without Cullen’s support. “I am incredibly grateful to be able to have her on the road with me. I don’t think I could do it without her,” said Hamilton as reported by GPFans.

While answering how he was feeling going the last two races, Hamilton said, “Feels good, I’m really happy with the car. I feel fit, fitter than ever and that’s a positive. Big thanks to Ange(Angela Cullen), she is having me trained and keeping me on my toes.” 

Cullen is a close friend and a confidante to Hamilton. “So Angela and I are naturally incredibly close, we pretty much live together. We are also the closest of friends so I am very, very lucky to have found Angela because she is a very special human being.” said the Briton.
