David O'Neill

Juncos Hollinger Racing announced May 16 the addition of David O’Neill, former sporting director and team manager of Haas F1 Team, in the newly created role of team principal.

O’Neill will partner with Team Manager David Morgan at JHR.

“Juncos Hollinger Racing isn’t scared to go where other teams haven’t gone before, which makes them incredibly well poised to build for their future,” O’Neill said. “The team has a number of initiatives planned throughout the next few years, and I am excited to not only be a part of it but to also help lead the charge side-by-side with the team.”

Said Ricardo Juncos, founder and co-owner of JHR: “Having spent time getting to know the team over the last several weeks, it is clear that David O’Neill will bring innovative ideas not only to JHR as a team, but to the NTT INDYCAR SERIES as a whole. We are thrilled to have him on the team and look forward to doing things a bit differently than any other team in the sport. The addition of his knowledge and expertise will help enable JHR as we prepare for some extraordinary initiatives throughout the 2024 season and beyond.”

O’Neill comes to JHR from Esses Racing, where he was managing partner and team principal. He also brings extensive experience as a motorsports technical expert and operations consultant following his time at Haas F1 Team, where he was instrumental in helping to launch the Formula One team at its inception.

“Welcoming David O’Neill as our newly appointed position of team principal is just another example of the dedication and investment we’re making into the future of JHR by bringing onboard the talent we need to achieve our goal of creating a winning team,” JHR co-owner Brad Hollinger said. “I am committed to investing in the human talent, technologic capabilities and state-of-the-art racing equipment we need to reach our potential. David brings a wealth of sporting management talent to JHR and will help guide our team to new heights – together.”

NTT INDYCAR SERIES veterans Romain Grosjean and Agustin Canapino drive the Chevrolet-powered entries for JHR.
