Ferrari Unveil The F14-T

Ferrari have unveiled their 2014 title contender, the F14-T, at Maranello this afternoon.

The new machine was released through the humble medium of the internet, with Ferrari simply launching images of the new car on their website. The F14-T, to be driven by Fernando Alonso and Ferrari returnee Kimi Raikkonen, looks largely similar to the 2013 model, except with a much lowered nose section which all cars must have.

Ferrari are the fifth team to release their new car, following on from Force India, Williams, McLaren and Lotus. You can see the other cars here.

The name of the car was selected by fans, with 33% of fans choosing F14-T. A further 31% voted for F166 Turbo, 19% voting for F14 Scuderia, F14 Maranello getting 12% of the votes and F616 coming in fifth with 5%.

The new cars will take to the track in Jerez next week for the first of three pre-season tests. McLaren and Lotus won’t be in attendance, however, as Lotus announced they would skip the test while McLaren was forced to skip it after failing the mandatory pre-season crash tests.
