Boullier is a graduate of the French Institut Polytechnique des Sciences Appliquées[1] · [2] engineering school where he studied aeronautical and spacecraft engineering.[3] In 2002 he took the position of chief engineer with the Spanish Racing Engineering team, in charge of its World Series by Nissan programme.[3]

In early 2003, he moved to the French DAMS team to become the managing and technical director, including the A1 Team France operation.[3]

At the end of 2008, Boullier became the CEO of Gravity Sport Management, where he was in charge of many young drivers including Ho-Pin Tung, Adrien Tambay, Jérôme d'Ambrosio and Christian Vietoris.[3]

After the 2009 season, the Renault F1 team was bought-into by investment company Genii Capital. One of Genii's leading figures is Gerard Lopez, who is a major backer of Gravity Sport. On January 5, 2010, Boullier was announced as the new team principal, despite never having worked in Formula One before. The Renault F1 team finished fifth in the World Constructors' Championship in 2010 and, following Renault's withdrawal, the newly named Lotus Renault GP team finished fifth in the World Constructors' Championship in 2011. In 2012, Boullier remains as team principal, which has been renamed again, to Lotus F1 Team. Boullier is also vice chairman of the Formula One Teams Association.
