Lewis Hamilton’s former performance coach Angela Cullen has posted a series of cryptic social media posts to leave fans curious.
Hamilton and Cullen ended their seven-year partnership last month after helping the British driver win four of his seven Formula 1 World Championships.
He thanked Cullen for “pushing me to be the best version of myself” in a touching Instagram post.
Hamilton also claimed he “can’t wait to see what the future has in store” for his former colleague.
It appears the future is very bright for Cullen, as she has been making the most of her free time by rock climbing, paragliding and skiing, among other activities.
Cullen has also been skiing. She wrote: “Been having fun this winter on the slopes… fell in love with these skis.
“Fans are trying to distinguish whether there is any meaning behind Cullen’s social media posts.
Hamilton has not provided a reason for her exit, only revealing the coach wanted to “pursue her dreams”. Perhaps having more free time is allowing her to do that.
Hamilton paid tribute to Cullen on her departure. He wrote on Instagram: “For the last seven years, Angela has been by my side, pushing me to be the best version of myself. 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.”
Hamilton and Cullen remain friends despite her exit, with the two completing a skydive together last year. He has confirmed they will do another jump in the future. Hamilton explained: “Angela is living her life right now.
She’s got so many great ideas of things she wants to do. We message pretty much every day, We’re still going to skydive together.
“We’re always going to be in each other’s lives. We are stuck together, unfortunately, or fortunately.
We’ve been through thick and thin so I’m grateful our relationship is as good as it is and I think we’ve probably had one of the longest relationships in the sport, so incredibly grateful for her and I love her dearly.”
