Interesting watch here on Angela Cullen. Apparently she was passed over by a number of F1 drivers, Hamilton hired her after one interview.

Shes basically his right hand women. The understanding and relationship they seem to have is more than I think I have seen with any other driver. Where ever he goes she goes and there is obviously a massive trust level between the two, which for Lewis is probably huge.

I personally think her coming on board with Lewis has taken him to another level, not just performance wise but mentally as well. Gone are the days where a bad qualifying or a distraction used to ruin is race before the sun even rose on a Sunday.

I'm surprised the other top drivers haven't followed suit

who says they haven't .... Max Verstappen has the same personal trainer (as far as i know) since he entered F1

but... the relationship between Angela and Lewis is special and put in focus because she works together with a 6x worldchampion, ppl tend to notice that sooner then when you are driving for 3th, 4th or even 20th

They all have personal trainers but that's not what I meant when I said follow suit. I meant have someone around them who is more of a right hand person than just a personal trainer.

Angela is noticed because most of the time if you see Lewis on tv she is there. If this was the case with Max and his personal trainer you would know or not if it was the same person (using your example).

i don't know because i don't care about "right hand" or personal trainer stuff... and as i said these two has a special relationship and they stand more in focus due to his 6 WDC's

A lot of racers have pretty close trainers. Even closer than Lewis' own. Angella doesnt go with him to hollywood thats for sure.
Perez's and Alonso's trainers are extemely close to them. Maybe more than Lewis'.

Sometimes i wonder if Lewis is more than friend to her though. Hehe.

Rule 1, do not cohort with the employees.

Would be very hard to restrain in this case though, she seems lovely as well as extremely efficient.

Toto did it this time around, and even answered a question about the engineering station being stress tested to withstand his pounding. :lol: :lol:

Hamilton yesterday stated at the awards numerous drivers are begging to get a drive at the team.

He would be crazy to leave Mercedes and won't go anywhere IMO.

Lewis won't be playing around with Angela, it's an important relationship for his racing and he wouldn't risk it getting emotional. he's someone who can have just person to person relationships with women. Hadid sisters, if you must 😁

Reading comments from Toto and Lewis I don't think it's as rosy as we think within the team, a lot of uncertainty hanging about to me.
My take is that Lewis will commit to an extension if he is satisfied that Toto will still be running things....otherwise he may opt to move teams.

Personally I'd love to see Lewis back at Mclaren Mercedes in 2021....
In 2007 I had the chance to go to a meet-and-greet with an F1 test driver. I decided not to as I didn't think he'd even amount to much...he was the BMW Sauber test driver and his name was Sebastian Vettel...
