Ferrari needs a Formula One title badly. The Scuderia has now revealed their 2014 race car named Ferrari F14 T.
The 2014 Formula One season will start in March on Australia. Now the teams are presenting their new cars. Ferrari has just revealed their highly anticipated Ferrari F14 T. The Ferrari F14 T is the 60th race car built by Ferrari specifically to take part in the Formula 1 World Championship.
The car name comes from the combination of the current year and the introduction of the turbo-compressor in the engine. Ferrari started work on the F14 T more than two years ago.
The big change in 2014 is the engine. Now only 6 cylinder engines are allowed with Turbo charging. The car design is very different from the cars of recent years. Changes to the regulations to lower the chassis and nose in the interests of driver safety give the F14 T a very different appearance. Although the external differences are striking, the largest areas of difference occur beneath the skin of the car. The new car has completely different cooling requirements from any of its predecessors. Engine oil and water radiators shrink in size to match the relatively smaller V6 internal combustion part of the Power Unit. However, new homes had to be found to accommodate an intercooler for the turbo-compressor system and to manage heat rejection from ERS components that are many times greater than their KERS antecedents.
