Ferrari's 2018 charger, unofficially denominated the 669, is the first F1 car to successfully pass the FIA's mandatory crash test.

Just like road cars, Formula 1 cars must undergo crash tests before being validated by the governing body for use.

Ferrari's car, designed by Simone Resta and head of aerodynamics Enrico Cardile, passed the stringent test and evaluations at the FIA-approved CSI facility at Bollate, located in the metropolitan area of Milan.

The Scuderia will kick off its season with the official launch of its car on February 22, just a few days before pre-season testing gets underway in Barcelona.
