Bernie Ecclestone, Formula One's commercial ringmaster, has rejoined the F1 board, according to the confirmation by F1's official Twitter account on Friday.

Ecclestone has run Formula One since 1978 and joined on the board as non-executive directors. In April, he was on trial for paying a 44 million U.S. dollars bribe to a Bavarian state bank executive for help of maintaining his four-decade grip on F1.

In August, Ecclestone settled his bribery case after arranging a controversial 100 million dollars payment.

A settlement is allowed in German criminal cases if the prosecution, the aggrieved parties and the court agree.
