Lewis Hamilton’s personal trainer Angela Cullen has finally expressed her emotions following the British driver’s revelation that the duo were parting ways.
Cullen has been a big part of Hamilton’s professional life, having assisted him for the past seven years.
The split is by no means acrimonious, and it was essentially explained by Lewis that the decision was made for Angela to ‘pursue her dreams’. However, he didn’t reveal much more and was rather just paying tribute to her.
Now, Angela has also returned the favour, penning down an emotional post on Instagram, which suggests she really does have a great opportunity on her hands.
“Exactly seven years ago on this day, I was standing in the F1 paddock for the first time at the Australian GP. Today I’m excited to share I’m off on my next adventure.
“I am so grateful and blessed to have had this incredible journey in F1, and I know my story will continue.
“Thanks to the MB team, who have been my family for the past seven years. And @lewishamilton you GOAT!!
“It’s been such an honour and pleasure to stand alongside you. I’m so proud of you and everything you have achieved.
“Thank you for supporting me, believing in me and showing me the limitless potential we all have within us. I am so excited to watch the next chapter for you. There’s nothing you can’t do.
Don’t stop believing… Lives journey is one big wave. Keep riding. Dream big. As Dreams do come true. Forever by your side. STILL WE RISE.”
Cullen first joined Hamilton in 2016 as his trainer and physiotherapist, but the duo soon enjoyed a very close bond.
Hamilton has, in fact, admitted that he owes much of his success to having Cullen assist him.
Cullen has been a regular feature at Grand Prix events and is the first to celebrate Hamilton’s success and has slowly even accumulated an impressive net worth.
They have both described their relationship as ‘extremely close’, with Lewis admitting that they were ‘practically living together‘.
Their heartfelt tribute to each other certainly proves their mutual respect.
