Mika Hakkinen returns to McLaren, in the role of ‘Partner Ambassador’. In this new role, the original Flying Finn will liaise directly with Executive Director Zak Brown and the marketing team within McLaren.
“Returning to McLaren was an easy decision for me – I’ve never really lost contact, and I still know a lot of the hard-working men and women there from my eight and a bit seasons with the team. I’m also really looking forward to working with Zak, who owns one of my race winning McLarens from 2001. We’ve spoken about how we can work together, and I can see that he’s putting in place the building blocks needed to help McLaren get back to the front. I’ll be collaborating closely with him during the exciting years ahead” Hakkinen, double world champion, has said.
