Ferrari's 2019 chassis underwent its mandatory crash test this week, the new tub getting the thumbs up from the FIA.

Reports from Italy say that the test took place at the CSI's facility in Bollate, and was conducted under the supervision of the governing body's technical delegate Jo Bauer.

The Scuderia will now properly build up the car that will be put through its paces by Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc during pre-season testing in Barcelona which begins on February 18.

However, Ferrari will conduct a shakedown run at the Circuit de Catalunya on Sunday, February 17, using one of its two authorized filming days to verify the car's systems.

Last week, Toro Rosso was the first team to announce the successful completion of its crash test.
