The Ferrari F14 T (also known by its internal name, Project Code 665) is a Formula One racing car designed by Nicholas Tombazis, Rory Byrne, and James Allison for Ferrari to compete in the 2014 Formula One season. It was driven by former World Drivers' Champions Fernando Alonso and Kimi Räikkönen, who returned to the team after a five-year absence. The F14 T was designed to use Ferrari's new 1.6-litre V6 turbocharged engine, the 059/3. The name of the car was chosen by fans in a poll organised by Ferrari. The "14" represents the year of competition, and the "T" reflects the series' shift to a turbocharged engine formula.
The F14 T was the first turbo powered Formula One car for Ferrari since the Gustav Brunner designed F1/87/88C driven by Michele Alboreto and Gerhard Berger in 1988. The Ferrari F1/87/88C was the car that gave the Scuderia their emotional 1–2 result for Berger and Alboreto at the 1988 Italian Grand Prix, the first Italian Grand Prix since the death of team founder Enzo Ferrari less than one month earlier, and the only time McLaren would not win a race in 1988. The car was also the first Ferrari machine since the Ferrari F93A, from 1993, that failed to score at least one Grand Prix win.
