Angela Cullen has broken her silence after it was confirmed she was leaving Mercedes, ending a successful seven-year partnership with Lewis Hamilton. The Silver Arrows superstar took to social media to hail Cullen on Friday, and now she has returned the favour.

She wrote: “Exactly seven years ago on this day, I was standing in the F1 paddock for the first time at the Australian GP. Today I’m excited to share I’m off on my next adventure.
