The single seater, up to 15 kilograms lighter than the original 2009 version according to Italian reports, is being tested in a straight line by the Spaniard Marc Gene.

Ferrari's heavily revised F60 formula one car made its track debut on Friday.

The single seater, up to 15 kilograms lighter than the original 2009 version according to Italian reports, is being tested in a straight line by the Spaniard Marc Gene.

The saved weight, in all areas including the material used for the seat belts, will benefit Ferrari's use of KERS, culminating in what Ferrari hopes is a lap-time advantage of several tenths.

It is also believed that the car, being called the F60B in the press, features a double-decker diffuser.

The aerodynamic test at Vairano, Italy, will be completed on Saturday.
