About Gary Foote

Gary Foote is the Chief Information Officer and Director of Sustainability at the Haas Formula 1 Team. Since 2016 he has been responsible for all technology systems, services, teams and staff for Haas F1’s global operations, across sites in the UK, US, Italy and trackside. Reporting directly to the Team Principal, Gary’s role is pivotal in ensuring the Haas team benefits from best-in-class technology solutions within this data-driven sport.

After studying BSc (Hons) Computer Science with Networks at the University of Derby, Gary joined Cosworth Technology as a Trackside Systems Support Engineer. Within this role, he gained experience at the A1GP World Cup of Motorsport championship as a
Primary Trackside Support Engineer, while also providing ad-hoc support in numerous racing series such as FIA-GT, WRC, BTCC, WTC and MotoGP.

In 2008, Gary became a Trackside IT Engineer for Honda Racing F1’s Test Team, which involved travelling to all tests and several races to maintain trackside IT infrastructure.

Having joined the Brawn GP F1 team as a Senior Technical Systems Engineer, Gary played a role in the team’s 2009 FIA F1 World Championship victory. As a Senior IT member of a small but dedicated IT team, he provided hands-on support and project management to Brawn GP.

In 2011, Gary moved to Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix Ltd. Initially working as an IT Support Desk Manager, he became Trackside IT Manager in 2012, followed by becoming the IT Service Delivery Manager in 2015. Responsible for IT service, both at the track and at UK
headquarters, Gary played a part in assisting the team to achieve consecutive FIA F1 World Championships.

Gary holds several positions outside of his role at Haas. As well as being a member of the board trustees of SSNAP (an Oxfordshire charity specialising in neonatal care), Gary is a trustee at Tove Learning Trust, a multi–Academy Education Trust.

A strong supporter of diversity and STEM education, he also volunteers as a coach, mentor, and guide to a group of students aged 8 to 14 who are competing in the UK FIRST Lego League (FLL) competition.

As well as his diverse and extensive work experience in the technology and motorsport industries, Gary is a Fellow of the British Computing Society, and he has been recognised as one of the top 100 Chief Information Officers in the UK in both 2021 and 2022.
