This photo will not exist in the future: Lewis Hamilton and his closest supervisor Angela Cullen are going their separate ways.


  • Lewis Hamilton and Angela Cullen parted ways.

  • The New Zealander has been the Formula 1 star’s closest advisor for seven years.

  • The reason for the split is unknown.

Red Bull and Verstappen dominate training, veteran Alonso continues to happily mingle with Aston Martin – from a sporting point of view, the first day of Formula 1 training in Saudi Arabia has not yet caused any surprises. But there was one in the ring next to the track. Mercedes star Lewis Hamilton appeared on Friday without his longtime and most important companion, Angela Cullen.

Shortly thereafter, there was also a statement on Instagram from the seven-time world champion: Coleen is now taking the next step to making her dreams come true. “Thanks to her, I am a stronger athlete and a better person,” said the 38-year-old Hamilton. Colin has been the trainer, physiotherapist and closest confidant of the Briton for seven years, never leaving Hamilton during his Formula 1 years. Now the collaboration ends before the second race of the season. It will not likely be an easy season for Hamilton and Mercedes.

“I’m very proud of you”

The 48-year-old New Zealander also expressed herself emotionally on social media about splitting from Lewis Hamilton, exactly seven years after they began collaborating in Australia: “You are the greatest ever. It was an honor and a pleasure to stand by you. I am proud of you and all of you.” something you’ve achieved.”

Neither she nor Hamilton wanted to reveal Colin’s path or what the reasons for the breakup were. She now embarks on a new adventure: “I know my story will continue.”
