Ferrari's 2016 car, codenamed 667, appears on course to make its track debut as scheduled at the first Barcelona test.

Omnicorse, a specialist Italian media source, said the car has now passed the FIA's frontal impact test at the CSI technical facility in Bollate, Italy.

It follows Ferrari's most recent attempt to pass the test some ten days ago, the report added.

Nose shorter?

In fact, Omnicorse said the 2016 solution required "several attempts" at the crash test, with La Gazzetta dello Sport agreeing that the nose of the car is shorter than its 2015 predecessor.

Gazzetta also reported rumours that the new red car has a more tightly-packaged rear thanks to new engine architecture and a smaller carbon gearbox.
