McLaren has confirmed that Peter Prodromou has started work with the team in his new role as chief engineer.

Prodromou left reigning world champions Red Bull for McLaren alongside Dan Fallows, but the latter then opted to remain with Red Bull.

As part of the resolution to the dispute, Prodromou has been allowed to start work at McLaren, the team with which he was with between 1991 and 2006.

"It’s fantastic to return to McLaren, and to see a mixture of faces old and new," said Prodromou.

"Of course, I have first-hand experience of just what a passionate, focused and capable race team exists within these walls, and I’ve already seen the enthusiasm and positivity that exists to return McLaren to world championship-winning glory.

"I, too, am determined to work flat-out to do everything I can to help initiate a new chapter of success in McLaren’s history."

Racing director Eric Bouller welcomed Prodromou's arrival.

"He joins us at an auspicious time; we’ve spent much of 2014 working to develop and organise our design department, and his arrival neatly coincides with the conclusion of that restructuring," he said.

"Peter has proved beyond doubt that he’s one of the most capable and intelligent engineers in Formula 1, and everyone at McLaren is looking forward to the contribution he’ll make as we push ahead with our ambitious plans for the future."
