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.

  1. 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

      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??

    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?

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

    ohhh the next step will be naming it the F14T 500

    Uninspiring. F + year + T[urbo]
    As I already explained, I didn’t pick that as the T used to stand for transversal in the Seventies, but it’s the best of the rest (the three full words in the other names sound bad)
    Still don’t know what F616 stood for.

    I hope for Scuderia fans that the new car being a F14T won’t mean the end of the bulletproof Ferrari reliability of recent seasons… Fix it again tomorrow?

  9. hahahaha The Ferrari Fiat!!!! hopefully, it performs like one! it’s so cool to have fiat in the F1 circus!!! next should be tata, geely, smart…

    F14 Tomcat + Iceman = Danger Zone.

    Surely this was intentional?
