Who is Angela Cullen?

Angela Cullen is the last person Lewis sees before the race and the first person he celebrates with after it. More importantly, she is the driving force behind his success over the last six years. Hamilton describes her as an important person in his life.

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’s 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 has had a positive influence on Hamilton’s life, which can get difficult due to his busy lifestyle. He claims that she brings him a sense of peace and “never a single day has been negative-and that’s important.”

Before working with Angela, Lewis Hamilton had a trainer who didn’t quite understand his physical issues. With Cullen, he faced no such problems. It was the perfect match.

When Lewis Hamilton offered her the job of being his physio, he didn’t expect their relationship to be the way it is now. Their shared word ethic and positivity only strengthen the bond they share. The two even have matching ‘Loyalty’ tattoos on their wrists.

With her by his side, Lewis has won four championship titles and is on his way for a fifth. With the contract extension, it’s a surety that the powerful duo will once again make their presence felt with Hamilton on the podium.
