Luca Badoer is to leave his role as test driver with Ferrari after 13 years in the position.

The Italian will make his final appearance in Ferrari colours during the annual Bologna Motor Show when he will take to the track at the wheel of an F60, the car campaigned by the team last season.

Badoer has held his role since 1998, which included some time while racing for the Minardi team, and made two race appearances last season while substituting for the injured Felipe Massa following the Brazilian's accident at the Hungaroring.

However, following below par performances at Valencia and Spa, the Italian was replaced by countryman Giancarlo Fisichella for the remainder of the season.

In total, Badoer started 50 F1 races during his career but failed to score a championship point.
