The seven-time world champion, Lewis Hamilton has been among one of the greatest sportspersons the world of motorsports has ever seen. Starting his journey from absolutely nothing, the ace Mercedes driver could surely be the greatest F1 driver of all time, if he is able to register the 8th world championship against his name. However, in this journey Hamilton hasn’t been along. One of the people who has always been witnessed by his side is his physio and close friend Angela Cullen.
On a recent occasion, Hamilton opened up upon the backstory how he partnered with Angela Cullen after not being able to settle down with any particular physio. Safe to say, whether the reigning world champion is dire need of motivation or having to cope to up with injuries, Angela Cullen has always been found by his side, especially during tough times.
What was Opinionated by Lewis Hamilton Angela Cullen?
Speaking to The Sun, Hamilton said, “When I got to F1 I didn’t have a trainer and when I got there, I was given a trainer at the time, they’re all called physios. And, a couple of the trainers I had were not physios, but they were called physios for the race weekend. And it was usually a guy that I was working with, would be on the road with me and train with me.”
He added, “And then I started to notice I was having issues every now and then again with small injuries popping up, or you realise you’ve got a neck problem or whatever it might be.”
“And I never had anyone to be able to fix that, and it’s not until after I look back and I’d see Angela. So, I said why don’t you come on the road with me, because I’m not training on race weekends, I need physio that knows my body and knows what it needs to be as prepared as possible for a race weekend, and then when I’m away I can train with her,” Lewis Hamilton concluded.
