Ferrari F14 T (2014) Nosecone - Alonso
The F14 T was Ferrari’s contender for the 2014 FIA Formula One World Championship® season. Named by a fans’ poll organised by Ferrari, the ‘14’ represented the year of competition and the T reflected the new era of turbocharged engines. Piloted 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, making the switch from the previous V8, making it the first turbo-powered Ferrari Formula One car since 1988.
Sadly, the F14 T was disappointing on track, achieving only 2 podium finishes during the entire season and, for the first time in 21 years, Ferrari failed to score at least one win. Overall, the car scored 216 points, achieving fourth in the Constructors’ Championship.
This fine 1:12 scale model nosecone is of the Ferrari F14 T as driven by Fernando Alonso. Alonso scored the team’s only two podiums: a third position in China and second place finish in Hungary, where he was overtaken by Daniel Riccardo with only two laps to go. Alonso was a consistent points finisher, never finishing outside the top ten, whilst he suffered two retirements, one in Italy, due to an electric problem in his engine, and one in Japan, after another electrical issue. Overall, he scored 161 points, finishing sixth in the Drivers’ Championship. 2014 was Alonso’s last year at Ferrari before he returned to McLaren for a second time.
This model has been handcrafted and finished in our workshops with the co-operation and assistance of the manufacturer regarding original finishes, materials, archive imagery and drawings. The use of supremely accurate digital scanning of the original car has allowed us to perfectly recreate every detail at scale. Furthermore, it has undergone detailed scrutiny by both engineering and design teams to ensure complete accuracy of representation.
This model is one of many in our collection of miniature nosecones.
