Motor racing: Ferrari fans settle on F14 T for this season's F1 car

(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 (

"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."

Ferrari have a line-up of champions this season with Finland's 2007 champion Kimi Raikkonen returning to Maranello from Lotus as team-mate to Spain's double champion Fernando Alonso.

The Italian team, who finished third overall last year, will unveil the new car online on Saturday.
