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!

      Me too. F14T was too simple. I like the sound of F166 TURBOOOO

    • I was too in favour of something with 6 though my favourite was f161 but F14 T is reminiscent of other Ferraris in the past at least hasn’t got “TURBO” written anywhere how childish and somewhat Renault reminiscent Fiat works well with everyone.

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

    Rubbish! LaDave it is.

    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!

    Am I the only one that doesn’t give a damn about the name of cars?

    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.

    F14 T = FIAT !!!! :D

    Brilliant, how humiliating

  13. MistaWu said on 24th January 2014, 12:09

    So, the IceMAn in a F14 Tomcat.. aweseome!

  14. deanmachine (@deanmachine) said on 24th January 2014, 12:20

    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.

    • petebaldwin (@petebaldwin) said on 24th January 2014, 12:35

      @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 :)

  15. I mentioned this before but don’t feel i got enough credit:

    If this year’s Ferrari is called the F14T, next year’s Ferrari has to be called the F15T

    ;)

    • Chris said on 25th January 2014, 21:05

      Exactly! It’s all about what they’re gonna call next years car. They’ll still be running the 1.4L turbo haha. Soooo maybe the F14 T2 – terminator edition??

  16. The Blade Runner (@thebladerunner) said on 24th January 2014, 12:33

    Maybe they should have called it the “Ferrari Phallus”…

    We’ll know when we see the pictures

    Meh.. overall the names to choose from were incredibly uninspiring.
    F14T = FIAT.
    I think 166 Turbo was okay, apart from the Turbo part. What is this? A cleaning product from the late 80’s?
    F14 Scuderia… meh.. might as well just be F14.
    Same story with F14 Maranello.
    F616 is okay I think.
    I would have liked if they had brought back the old ‘C designation from the 80’s.
    I think that is a little more unique. Instead of the standard T used on practically anything.
    F14C for instance. But then it wouldn’t read FIAT, which was probably the point, so..

    And Kimi Raikkonen, who doesn’t care about the old saying “You don’t win an F1 race in a Fiat Panda”, is leading the race and driving a FI4T….Panda?

  19. celler (@celler) said on 24th January 2014, 16:42

    “T” stands for “Top Gun”? They have the Iceman and Maverick (or should it be Goose?) so they needed the F14’s for battle
