Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone will stand trial on bribery charges in Munich, according to a statement from a German court.
"Under current planning, the main trial should start in late April," the Munich court said in a statement on Thursday.
Ecclestone, 82, was charged in July with bribing a German banker to smooth the sale of a stake in the motor racing business to private equity firm CVC eight years ago. Ecclestone has denied wrongdoing and said he will fight to clear his name.
