Lewis Hamilton has confirmed he is no longer working with Angela Cullen, who has been his personal trainer and physiotherapist for the past seven years.
“For the last seven years [Angela Cullen] has been by my side, pushing me to be the best version of myself,” Hamilton said on social media. “I am a stronger athlete and a better person because of her.
“So today I hope you’ll join me in wishing her the very best as she takes her next steps to pursue her dreams. Thank you for everything Ang, I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for you.”
Cullen began the 2023 season alongside Hamilton at the Bahrain Grand Prix two weeks ago, but is not with the seven-times world champion in Jeddah this weekend.
Hamilton, 38, began working with Hintsa during his time at McLaren. He has often praised Cullen for the work she has done in ensuring he is able to perform at his best.
He relied on Cullen to help him recover from several punishing events last season, notably in Baku which he described as his “most painful race ever” after suffering from extreme porpoising at the high-speed street circuit. Hamilton underwent cryotherapy to help his body recover.
