Ferrari's 2014 contender gets a name


Ferrari has revealed the name of its 2014 F1 contender following an online poll of its fans.

The car with which Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen will contest the 2014 season will be called the F14 T, the winning name having beaten F166 Turbo into second.

"It's nice to know the name of the car has been chosen by our fans," team boss Stefano Domenicali told the team's website. "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!"

In total there were 1,123,741 votes, the winning margin just 19,104 or 1.7%, following a close fight with F166 Turbo. The other three names on the list fared less well: third was F14 Scuderia (18.8%), followed by F14 Maranello (12.3%) and F616 (4.8%.)

The votes came from all four corners of the globe, 208 countries to be precise, over the nine days on which it was run. Naturally, Italy topped the list, followed by Spain, the United States, the United Kingdom and France.

Finland showed well in eighth, while among the BRICS nations, Russia came out on top in seventh, ahead of Brazil eleventh, India thirteenth, China fifteenth and South Africa thirty first.

There were some last minute new entries, worth noting the presence of Cuba, Greenland, Palau and Equatorial Guinea.
