    Team Principals

    Paul StewartChief Operating Officer - Paul Stewart
    Born in Dumbarton on 29th October, 1965, Paul Stewart has, within a decade, graduated from racing driver to Chief Operating Officer of Jaguar Racing.

    Raised at the family’s home in Begnins, Switzerland, he was educated at the nearby Aiglon College. At 19 he combined a degree in Political Science at North Carolina’s Duke University with his first entry into motor racing by enrolling at the Brands Hatch Racing School, albeit under the pseudonym ‘Robin Congdon’.

    Paul Stewart Racing (now Stewart Racing), established in 1988, was conceived as the vehicle for Paul’s own racing career. A winner in Formula Ford 2000 and in Formula 3, Paul was third in the F3000 race at Pau in 1993.

    His racing portfolio also includes a win in the GTO class at the Daytona 24-hour race, and a Formula 1 test with Arrows in 1993.

    For 1994, Paul chose to concentrate on team management. In 10 years of competition, Stewart Racing’s record is unsurpassed in junior formulae: 13 championships in both Formula Three and Formula Opel, over 137 race wins, and 312 podium finishes.

    When Stewart Grand Prix was launched in 1996, it fell to Paul to build the team from scratch. The instant reward was a superb second place for Rubens Barrichello in the Monaco Grand Prix the following year – the team’s first competitive season of Formula One.

    Following the announcement of the purchase of Stewart Grand Prix by the Ford Motor Company in June 1999 and the switch to Jaguar Racing for the 2000 season, Paul became Chief Operating Officer.

    Technical Director - Gary Anderson
    Jaguar Racing's Technical Director has been in the top flight of motor racing since the tender age of 21, soon after graduating from Coleraine Technical College in his native Ireland.

    After five years with Brabham he was recruited as McLaren's chief mechanic, then in 1979 gained real experience of F1 design when he reworked the hitherto recalcitrant M28 'ground-effect' car.

    In 1980 Anderson went solo and established Anson Racing, acting as a consultant to Formula One and sports car teams whilst also producing the distinctive and ground-breaking Anson Formula 3 cars.

    In 1990, after much Indycar and Formula 3000 success, Anderson was called upon by Eddie Jordan to design his first Grand Prix car. The resulting Jordan 191 remains the most handsome Grand Prix car of the modern era, and Anderson's green machines launched both the Jordan team and a young German named Schumacher into the F1 spotlight. Anderson's Jordan 198 finally scored the team's debut victory in 1998, just as his services were secured by Stewart-Ford.

    Last year's SF3 - together with the Cosworth engine - proved light, nimble and fast from the start. With Johnny Herbert's victory and fourth place in the constructors' championship setting new heights for the team, the evolution into Jaguar Racing can only benefit from the work of a man whose talents really demonstrate the art of performance.

    Anderson's other love, outside the hurly-burly world of motor sport, is the altogether more genteel atmosphere of canal boating.
