Matt Borland Named VP of Technology for Stewart-Haas Racing, Haas F1 Team

Haas F1 Team/Stewart-Haas Racing announced on Tuesday November, 18th that Matt Borland will be the Vice President of Technology for both teams moving forward.

“I’m an engineer at heart, so I’m always interested in building things,” Borland said. “It’s been very satisfying to help build Stewart-Haas Racing from a two-car team to a four-car team that’s always capable of winning championships. Now I have the best of both worlds, as I can continue to help improve Stewart-Haas Racing while building Haas F1 Team.

“We work smart and efficiently at Stewart-Haas Racing, and there are best practices we can apply to Haas F1 Team. Eventually, both organizations will make each other better, and I’m proud to be a part of it.”

Borland spent time at Pi Research, a motorsports engineering organization, and PacWest Racing in Champ Car for driver Mark Blundell, before joining NASCAR with Team Penske in 1999 through 2006. He then moved to Michael Waltrip Racing before joining SHR in May 2007. Borland has spent time as a crew chief, while holding other positions in the competition department at Stewart-Haas Racing.

Per the team press release, Borland “will oversee the transfer of Formula One technology to Stewart-Haas Racing while providing Haas F1 Team with deep engineering resources. Concurrently, the highly-respected Borland will serve as a gatekeeper, ensuring the privacy of proprietary information respective to each team.”
