Cullen was also a world-class athlete during her youth, representing New Zealand in hockey, and she has completed a cycling tour from Tierra Del Fuego in Argentina to Colombia, a total of 155 miles a day.
She was also instrumental in working with Team GB’s 4x100 athletics relay team, which won gold at the 2004 Summer Olympics held in Athens.
Cullen is just one of a trio of trainers who have recently departed the F1 paddock in the past three years.
Max Verstappen’s trainer, Bradley Scanes, left the sport following last November’s Abu Dhabi GP, with Carlos Sainz’s previous trainer, Rupert Manwaring, taking over the Brit’s duties with Verstappen for 2024.
Michael Italiano, former personal trainer for Yuki Tsunoda, departed the sport at the end of 2023 to take up a role outside motorsport.
The retirements of Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel in 2021 and 2022, respectively, saw Brit Mark Arnall take on a role inside FOM, looking after the company’s on-site employees at races.
