Two-time Formula 1 world champion Mika Hakkinen has rejoined the McLaren F1 team in a 'partner ambassador' role.

The 48-year-old Finn competed in 130 grands prix with Mclaren between 1993 and 2001, winning 20 of them and the '98 and '99 drivers' titles.

Hakkinen will work alongside executive director Zak Brown and the team's marketing staff, dealing with partners, and will also work with McLaren Automotive CEO Mike Flewitt.

"I've always considered McLaren to be my home in Formula 1, and I still have an enormous place in my heart for everyone in the team," said Hakkinen.
