Maranello – A deluge of votes has hit the website opened by Ferrari so that fans can choose the name of the 2014 car. The fans referendum has been far more popular than expected and after 24 hours, F14 T ad F166 Turbo are head to head, with about 60% of the total votes between them.
People from 183 countries have gone on line in just a few hours. The top four in order of votes placed are Italy, Spain, the UK and the USA. No surprises so far then, but fifth place is worthy of note, being the relatively small nation of Finland, which comes ahead of Russia, with Hungary, France, Germany and Japan completing the top ten Clearly, the effect of Raikkonen’s return to Maranello has made itself felt and there has also been an increase in votes from China, because as from today the referendum has got underway there, through the social network Weibo.
Among the more unusual figures of this first 24 hours are twelve votes from Afghanistan, five from Greenland, while on one vote, we have Congo, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Djibuti, Guam, Haiti, New Caledonia, Palestine and the Svalbard Islands.
