(REUTERS) - Ferrari's 2014 Formula One car will be called the F14 T after an online poll of fans, the Italian motor-racing team said on Friday.

They said 1,123,741 votes were cast from 208 countries - as far afield as Palau, Greenland and Equatorial Guinea - over nine days from Jan 15 to 23, with the winning designation beating F166 Turbo by just 19,104.

Fans were given a choice of five names to vote for.

"It's nice to know the name of the car has been chosen by our fans," team principal Stefano Domenicali told the team website (www.ferrari.com).
