A German court says Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone's bribery trial will begin April 24.

The Munich regional court on Friday announced trial dates through Sept. 16.

The 83-year-old was indicted last May on charges of bribery and incitement to breach of trust connected with a $45 million payment to a German banker, Gerhard Gribkowsky.

Bribery convictions can result in prison sentences ranging from three months to 10 years in Germany.

Ecclestone has denied the charges.
