Hamilton explains the new support structure since Cullen departure

His longtime physio Angela Cullen left the team after the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix, with Lewis Hamilton now having two people replace her in his support network.

Lewis Hamilton has explained his new support structure which has been in place since the departure of long-time physiotherapist Angela Cullen.

Cullen was part of Hamilton's circle for seven years, but the pair parted ways after the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix after Toto Wolff claimed the World Champion was "looking for a change."

The role is now shared between two new physiotherapists, however much of that support network is still the same in the background, says Hamilton.

"I have a slightly different setup, [Angela's role] is shared between two individuals. The rest of my team does the same," said Hamilton to media, including RacingNews365.com.

"The setup I have right now is great. One of the guys - Steve - was with me since my first race at McLaren, he followed me here as my gearbox technician and moved on to several other roles.

"The weekends are so busy, so you have a little chat in the garage but now we have a little bit of a more exciting journey together.

"Otherwise, I'm working on someone with my training - Kylie, then I have Santi here, I have Penni. I have a great support structure."

Hamilton still in contact with Cullen

Hamilton is still in contact with Cullen and claims that he is currently planning their "next fun adventure" together, which he hopes could potentially be climbing Mount Everest.

"Ange and I was talking just the other day. We stay in contact quite consistently," he added.

"We're always gonna be in each other's lives, always looking forward to next fun adventure, whether it be skydiving, climbing Mount Everest together at some stage probably, who knows."
