    I voted F14T, I have never liked names that refer to the enigne used, but that’s personal preference.

      I like it in their road cars, which is why I’m more likely to think of the 348 whenever someone mentions a Ferrari 248..

    I don’t care what the heck they call it as long as it is fast and reliable.

    ‘Veto’ sounds Italian enough, doesn’t it?

    It’s just me or looking at the covered F1 car from the Ferrari website there is no idiotic/ugly nose like the ones in the drawings ?

  5. Was hoping for Ferrari Cornetto, in honor of Kimi. Not there though…

    Check out the steeped nose under that Ferrari blanket on the voting page….Brutal!!

    I voted the F14 T, Alonso in 2014 with the number 14 driving the F14 T ….not a bad idea at all

  8. It would be a lot more interesting if the public actually got to pick a name and not just pick from a select few from a list provided.

    Most of the choices sound like fighter plane names rather than an F1 car. Personally, I prefer cars to have a word as a name rather than a series of letters/numbers but that doesn’t seem to be the F1 way. The F14T is my best of a bad bunch choice, only because I like the symmetry others have pointed out.

    I voted for F166 TURBO.

  11. If it’s anything like the car that arrived at Melbourne 22 months ago they may be calling it ‘The Bloody Awful’…

  12. @keithcollantine they could act on Lotus’ rules and call it the “Keith”

    F166 TURBO BACKMARKER

    too bad we’re in for more stepped noses this year, and there’s a very high chance of that happening….

  15. MatthewRacing (@matthewracing) said on 16th January 2014, 14:13

    I’d call it something like the RB10-B for a laugh.

    Although McLaren are set to launch on Friday, Ferrari’s could be the first launch for a car appearing in Jerez – as the Woking team might have failed FIA crash tests…

    I thought I’d just cast some of my other votes (I love Ferrari’s twisted version of democracy! They’ve had special favours from the FIA for way too long) and it’s neck and neck between F14T & F166 Turbo, both on 29%. F14 Scuderia’s next with 23%.
