Teamwork makes the dream work, and that is exactly what the team of Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton did at Silverstone. As always, the British GP yielded a positive result for Hamilton. Mercedes could’ve collected more points had George Russell not crashed out of the race at the start. However, British fans were happy to see the Hamilton dream team work its magic and celebrate a podium. And this one fan, in particular, stood out.

The dream team comprising Hamilton, his race engineer, Bono, and physio Angela Cullen, got to celebrate again after a tough start to the season. Cullen, particularly, has been beside Hamilton since 2016 and has become a friend and confidant. The fan held up a sign at Silverstone with photos of the dream team to show his support with a cheeky message.

The hilarious message from the young fan pointed out the need for Cullen to get a scooter as a reference to a past incident. In 2021, Hamilton zoomed away on a scooter, leaving Cullen on foot. The video made its rounds on Twitter as the fans reacted to the incident with some hilarious replies.

Fortunately, Cullen has now got her own scooter. We even saw her riding it during the British GP weekend while taking Roscoe, Lewis’s pet dog, for a walk.
