New Ferrari named F14 T by fans vote

2014 F1 season

Ferrari F138 launch, 2013Ferrari have confirmed their new F1 car will be called the F14 T following a poll on its website.

The name was chosen by 32.9% of the 1.1 million fans who voted in the poll. The runner-up choice of F166 Turbo attracted 31.2% of the vote, with the rest split between F14 Scuderia, F14 Maranello and F616.

The Ferrari F14 T is set to be launched tomorrow. It will be the team’s first car powered by a V6 turbo engine since the F1/87-88C used in the 1988 season.

“The amazing number of votes shows just how popular Ferrari has always been and this will be, as always, a further impetus for us to do well this year,” said team principal Stefano Domenicali.

    Fiat was just the best choice!

  2. Argh, I was in favour of the F166 Turbo, just because the F14 T first sounded to my hear as a Ford T!

    The name I voted for. Must say though, I kindda hoped for better like F166 Turbo to be the one.

    I think that the Ferrari with the new p***s noses will look better than most. The Red Bull’ll probably be pretty bad as it is a different color to the rest of the car. Can’t wait for the McLaren launch. 15 minutes baby!

    Obviously this was rigged! People think its a coincidence that it reads FIAT!

    I think that the Ferrari with the new ‘private’ noses will look better than most. The Red Bull’ll probably be pretty bad as it is a different color to the rest of the car. Can’t wait for the McLaren launch. 15 minutes baby!

    hahaha!!!!! What a rediculous name… Here comes Alonso in the Fiat. :D

    That’s what happens when you let non-Ferrari fans vote for the name of the Ferrari.

    I picked F166 Turbo because it links in with old Ferrari naming convention as the 458 Italia does. 1.6 litres, 6 cylinders. But whatever, Ferrari doesn’t really like sticking to the convention itself.

      @deanmachine – exactly. Someone mentioned it when the names were first suggested a while ago. Previously they had the 312T. The T stood for ‘transverse’ and related to the way the gearbox was mounted.

      It’s probably just me being a bit OCD about it but I like for these things to all make sense so that when you see a T on a Ferrari, you know what it means.

      F14T just feels like a gimmick… I suppose that makes it perfect for modern day F1!

    • these are different from 458 kind of naming convention cause, you need a name every year, what are you going to call it next year ? f166/2 turbo ??, i like F14 T which has year in it, and is kind of industry standard to suffix turbo cars with “T”, i like it :)
