Second ex-Lewis Hamilton trainer has the same things to say as Angela Cullen

Hamilton opens up on plans to remain in F1 ahead of 2023 season

Lewis Hamilton’s former trainer has backed up Angela Cullen’s comments on the Mercedes star’s mentality. Clayton Green said Hamilton was dedicated to “being better” and always hungry for improvement.

Green worked with Hamilton at McLaren before he was replaced with Valtteri Bottas’ current physio Antti Vierula in 2011. It comes just weeks after Cullen made similar remarks about Hamilton on social media after the pair parted ways.

Green posted on Instagram: “Working with Sir Lewis Hamilton back in 2010 taught me a lot about greatness. Lewis has always been dedicated to searching for ways to be better than yesterday. We can all benefit from being hungrier for self-improvement.”

Hamilton and Cullen partnered up in 2016 and have been inseparable in and out of race paddocks.

However, the duo confirmed they would part ways ahead of the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix in March. No further details have emerged on why the pair parted ways with Hamilton only confirming the New Zealander was off to “follow her dreams”.

After making the official announcement Cullen branded Hamilton the “GOAT” and praised his personality behind closed doors. She posted on Instagram: “It’s been such an honour and pleasure to stand alongside you. I’m so proud of you and everything you have achieved.

“Thank you for supporting me, believing in me and showing me the limitless potential we all have within us.” Just days ago, Vierula also weighed in on Hamilton’s mindset as he backed up comments from Green and Cullen.

He told Grosvenor Sport: “He was brilliant in getting everything out of the car and engineers, he pushes people to get the best out of everyone. He would work hard getting answers from engineers, giving his opinion about what he thinks is right. He had a brilliant will to improve.”

Vierula and Hamilton parted ways in 2012 after the champion left McLaren for Mercedes. Meanwhile, Vierula worked with Sergio Perez in the British squad and now helps train Alfa Romeo star Bottas.

But, Hamilton cooled any suggestions of a rift as he explained his intention to remain close with the 48-year-old. He said: “Angela is living her life right now. She’s got so many great ideas of things she wants to do.

“We talk and message pretty much every day. We’re still going to go skydiving together and we’re always going to be in each other’s lives. We’re stuck with each other, unfortunately or fortunately.”
