Lewis Hamilton addresses Angela Cullen split and hints at replacement

Hamilton and Cullen parted ways ahead of the 2023 Saudi Arabian GP

-

Ahead of the 2023 Australian GP, Lewis Hamilton has revealed that even though he has split with assistant and trainer Angela Cullen, the pair remain close, as the seven-time champion now is working with a replacement. 

Cullen and Hamilton had worked together for seven years and started the 2023 F1 season with each other, before the announcement was made prior to the Saudi Arabian GP that they would not longer be working together. 

“When I started doing form one I was with my dear friend Aki [Hintsan], who passed away from cancer,” Hamilton told Sky Sports F1.  

“But he had a huge influence on me even getting into into a team. And then he started up this company, where it was servicing athletes. And pretty much I think pretty much all the drivers use his medical trainer application and physio and stuff like that. 

“It’s an incredibly challenging role. I think for anyone in those positions, a lot of travelling a lot of time with your family. You grow incredibly close together.

“If you’re at dinner, during your weekends, and while you’re travelling, it’s usually you and your trainer or physio, and whether it’s your family or whatever it may be, it’s incredibly intimate in that sense. And you become great friends. 

“Angela is living her life right now. She’s got so many great ideas of things she wants to do. We talk, we message pretty much every day, we’ll still going to skydive together, we’ll always be in each other’s lives. We’re stuck with each other unfortunately, or fortunately. 

“We’ve been through thick and thin. So I’m grateful that our relationship is as good as it is. And I think we’ve probably had one of the longest relationships I would say in the sport. 

“So I’m incredibly grateful for her and love her dearly and I think now I’ve got one of the guys, Steve O who’s been with me since my first race and my McLaren, he’s helping me out, as well as Santi.”
