Lewis Hamilton’s Physio Sidekick is Angela Cullen

Across a race weekend, New Zealand-born Switzerland-based physiotherapist Angela Cullen is a near-constant presence at the side of her harge Lewis Hamilton – a fact which has even earned her cult status among some F1 fans. And with a seventh championship under his belt, Hamilton has hailed the relationship the pair enjoy as “the greatest partnership”.

Cullen – who like many performance coaches working in F1 is part of the Finnish Hintsa Performance company – began working with Hamilton at the start of the 2016 season. The seventh-time champion praised the positive impact Cullen has had on his performances.

“She has been one of the greatest things that’s happened to me in my life,” Hamilton said. “I’ve been fortunate to work with a lot of people … and she’s the single hardest-working woman that I get to be around.”

Cullen, who grew up in Devonport, is a former hockey player who represented New Zealand.
