Ferrari’s new car features a red-and-black design
MARANELLO, Italy (AP) — Ferrari unveiled its 2014 Formula One car Saturday in an online presentation, showing off a new paint job featuring a black outline of the familiar red coloring.
The F14 T, Ferrari’s 60th Formula One car, features a thin nose with an open front that curves down to the front wing. Its name was selected following an online vote with more than a million responses.
The Italian team is hoping that the return of turbo engines to F1 this year will help it win its first title in six years.
Kimi Raikkonen won Ferrari’s last driver’s title in 2007 and the team’s last constructor’s title came in 2008.
Fernando Alonso is entering his fifth season with Ferrari, having finished second in the drivers’ standings in three of the past four years.
Raikkonen recently rejoined Ferrari after two years away from F1 and two years with the Lotus squad. He will test the new car for the first time in Jerez, Spain, on Tuesday.
In last year’s constructor’s standings, Ferrari finished third behind Red Bull and Mercedes.
