Lewis Hamilton shares a heartfelt post about his physio, Angela Cullen

Whenever Hamilton needs an extra boost of energy to dominate the track, he turns to his loyal friend, Cullen. The duo are inseparable during a Grand Prix weekend, and always embrace each other no matter the result of the race. Whether it be securing the victory or enduring a painful defeat, Cullen is there to help Hamilton through the ups and downs F1 throws at him.

Hence, he took to Instagram to appreciate her, as she has been there for him through everything. Hamilton wrote, “Through the highs and lows, ride or die! Love ya.”

What more does Hamilton have to say about Cullen?

Hailing from New Zealand, Cullen joined Hamilton’s entourage in the 2016 season. And since then, the Mercedes driver has nothing but praise for her, stating that she was the greatest thing that has ever happened to her.

He said, “People for sure won’t understand it, naturally, because they see it from a distance, but she has been one of the greatest things that have happened to me in my life. I’ve been fortunate to work with a lot of people… and she’s the single hardest-working woman that I get to be around.”

“She’s focused, selfless, and she makes my weekends peaceful. Every day I wake up, whatever time it is, she’s just positive – never a single day has she been negative, so that’s very, very important,” Hamilton concluded.

Now with the 2021 season being more intense than ever before, Hamilton will look to his loyal aid to help him overcome the obstacles that this year throws at him. His sole objective will be to win another title, which would be his eighth title in F1.
