48-year-old Finn spent in the composition of the team from Woking 130 Grands Prix, has won 20 of them and twice became world champion in 1998 and 1999.
Hakkinen will work side by side with Executive Director Zach brown, CEO of McLaren Automotive Mike Flitton and marketing Department, which conducts business with partners of the McLaren Group.
“I always thought the McLaren home in F1 – quoted Miku AUTOSPORT.com. – This team still holds a huge place in my heart.
Of course, the last few years have been difficult, but I have always held the opinion that the return of McLaren to the top is only a matter of time. And I want to help her in this.
The decision to return to McLaren was easy to me. I never lost contact with the team and still know many of the staff team, which worked throughout its eight seasons.
I also look forward to cooperation with Zach. We have already discussed how we will work. I will be in close contact with him in the coming years.”
