The Bahrain International Circuit has formally welcomed back the employees who were dismissed during last year's protests in the nation.
The Sakhir track reinstated the staff members on the advice of the Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry, which is examining events around 2011's political tensions.
Chairman of the circuit board Zayed Rashid Al Zayani said: "In accordance with the directives of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, in the spirit of reconciliation - following with the recommendations of the BICI report - the Board of the Bahrain International Circuit warmly welcomes back our employees and looks forward to them rejoining the BIC family.
"We are approaching a crucial time of the year at BIC, with the hosting of the Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix coming up in three months' time. We look forward to working again as one unit, as we have done in the past, to show the world what Bahrain is really about."
