That, plus extra shifts in the factory for everyone instead. Just 10 more days at disposal, will be tough to keep it up to schedule.

Hey Iridescent! Get back to work!! No time for forum posts for you! You and your colleagues are waaay too busy building the fastest, most bullet-proof, WDC/WCC-winning F1 ride!

 

I just hope the car comes without the Pinocchio nose...but if it's faster with it, I'll take it. : )

So far it's very close, two horse race: http://2014f1car.fer....com/en/#choose

F14 T 28%

F14 Maranello 16%

F14 Scuderia 18%

F166 turbo 30%

F616 8%

for me F14T and F166 turbo are also the best choices.

I agree with you 100%. Thats why I voted for it too. F616 Turbo would have been betyter too , yes.

To me that would mean 6 litres and 16 cylinders like the 246, 308, 348, 512 or 612. Naturally those are road cars, but we've had race cars like the 158, 246, 248, 312 and so on.

F166T woulda been my choice so F166 Turbo will do!

 

 

..... I don't understand why there has to be "Turbo" after F166 since simple T designation was used for turbo engines for quite a while now.

 

 

F166 T would have been a winner.

 

Yup! F166T would have been the perfect name. Gotta make do with F14T I guess :(

Anything with "Turbo" in it! Retro...but I think (for marketing purposes), Ferrari will choose F14T regardless of voting results.

The T/Turbo thing is just semantics, like the F150/F150° Italia two years ago. If it wins, I imagine that most people will refer to the car using the abbreviated version anyway.

Voted for F14 T as it is a nice condensed format.

 

I was hoping that Ferrari would have incorporated 'MS' somewhere in its name choices in support of Michael. It would have been a natural extension of the support and affection that has been displayed by tifosi towards Schumacher during this difficult time.

 

How about F14T-MS?

In the "old days" the T designation at the end referred to a [t]ransverse gearbox.  See 312T, 312T2, 312T3, 312T4, 312T5.

 

The turbo cars of the 80's were never designated as "T" or "Turbo".  Rather, they started as having a a "c" in the name (maybe for "compressor"?).  See 126CK, 126C2, 126C2B, 126C3, 126C4 from 1981-1984.

 

For the next year, the car had the strange designation 156/85, which was actually the most descriptive name up to that point, as it had the correct engine size (1.5 liters) and number of cylinders (6) and the year it competed (1985).

 

Then for some reason the remaining turbo cars were identified by just the year, F1/86, F1/87, F1/87/88C.

 

So they never used "T" to designate one of the turbo-engined cars.

"C" in the 126 C series stood for "Competizione", rather than "Compressore". In the late '40s/early'50s Ferrari had the 166 C where "C" stood for "Corsa".

 

I personally chose 166 Turbo because ever since I was a child, to me F1 Ferraris were named after Technical specs of the engine (312, 156 with capacity and cylinder no. combination, 126 incorporating the 120° between the vee and cylinders number). They could call it F166/15 Turbo in 2015 and so forth (or F166 T2 and so forth) for the following years

 

I have never liked F1 Ferraris designation which were non-engine related (such as the F1/8x, F9xA, F20xx series, F10 or the celebrative series such as F60), except from the F1-2000, which to me was somehow meaning "the F1 car of the years 2000", and the 150°Italia (being Italian, I appreciated Ferrari wanting to celebrate the150th anniversary of Italian unification).

Luckily, we had the 412 T series (where 4 was the number of valves combined with the 12 cylinders), the F3xx series of late 90s and the 248 F1.

 

I wonder whether Northrop could sue Ferrari for using F14, which is reminiscent of the F-14 Aircraft, after Ford threatened to do so for the F-150/150° Italia... also bearing in mind that there are aircafts named F-15, F16, YF-17, F-18: and Ferrari could also be sued by Boeing or Gulfstream, and be forced to change their name every year... :lol:

Let's just hope the T doesn't end up standing for "Turd"

I like all the F14's. I voted for F14T in the end, short and simple.

 

I have to be honest, it is really nice having the Kimi fans back on board again. It felt wrong when he left for me, glad he is back. :up:

I heard he started work on the simulator the other day, what about Alonso? I haven't really heard anything about Alonso in Maranello recently. Is this just routine seat fitting, housekeeping type stuff for a new driver for Kimi right now? Or does Alonso not really need to do this work?

I'm gonna love by far the strongest lineup on the grid, but am also enjoying the calm before the storm before the season starts!  :D

I suppose it's not news when Alonso works in Maranello, of course it's different for Kimi. There was a report when Alonso worked on the sim car for the first time as well, Dec 15:

Rubbish turbos are uncool.

 

That's why Ferrari road cars are racy with their screaming V8s and V12s.

 

Not like those boring McLaren 12Cs  :p

 

N/a - excitement :clap: , not muted burble.  :yawnface:

 

Shouldn't it be called F166 ?    1.6l, V6.

 

In a Ferrari name T is for Transverse gearbox not turbo.  So to call it F14T doesn't make any sense!!

Oh right thanks. I hadn't heard about that.

 

I wonder what Massa thought about the car. I remember when JB and Lewis said the MP4-28 was 'insanely fast' on the sim  :lol:

Well whatever he thought about it, I just hope the correlation was finally realistic.

The favourite, F166 Turbo is a bit of a mouthful isn't it?

 

How would you say it? The 'F-one-six-six'? 'F-sixteen-6', 'F-1-sixty six'?

 

Actually, 'F1-66 Turbo' sounds pretty cool to me!

I am not a big fan of naming a car only based on the engine (naming based on the year like F2003 is even worse). The name could reflect on other features of the car as well. ERS is big this year. KERS share has become bigger. Okay, this year is about new power trains, but in other years, other features relating to a car could be used in naming it.

There are more videos of him, but I don't want to post all of them, so you can watch the rest on this Ferrari you tube channel.

p.s.  I recommend you watch all. They are really great. He seems so relaxed.

La Ferrari Ferrari  Turbo 1.6i Ghia.

 

The word Ghia will then start a bun fight with Ford ( again ), who will demand Ghia is dropped so nobody mistakes the new Ferrari with the 1.6i Ford Orion Ghia.

 

Ferrari will then drop the Ghia and add an extra Ferrari, or La, or indeed both.

 

La La Ferrari Ferrari Ferrari Turbo 1.6 is my guess.  They might change it to La La Ferrari Ferrari  Ferrari 1.6 Turbo though.

 

They might add Special or Very Special at a later date but do it in Italian so it actually sounds faster than it is.

 

Andy

 

PS Now that Ron is back in  charge at Mclaren their new car will have over 120 characters and numerals in it. The car might be delayed for the first test while they work out a number bigger than infinity whilst also implying a new manufacturing process.
