Sometimes the family you choose has a greater impact on your lives than the family you’re born with. For most, this chosen family consists of friends or partners that one meets throughout their lives. However, it rarely happens when an employee becomes so close to his employer they become part of their lives forever. Although this is exactly the case with Lewis Hamilton and Angela Cullen. The two broke their hugely successive alliance at the start of the 2023 season. However, Hamilton’s performance coach has engraved herself in the seven-time world champion’s life. She showcased that with her words of appreciation for his brother Nicolas Hamilton‘s post on World Cerebral Palsy Day.
