Ferrari has unveiled their 2014 challenger in Maranello, the F14 T.

Ferrari revealed on Friday that the car would be called the F14 T after it topped an online poll decided by fans.

The car will be raced by Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen.

Raikkonen will debut the car at Jerez on Tuesday and Wednesday, before handing over testing duties to Fernando Alonso for the remaining two days.

Alonso believes that the arrival of 2007 world champion Raikkonen gives Ferrari a strong driver line-up.

"I think Kimi and me as a team we should be quite strong in the paper because we’ve had some success in the past in the Formula One career."

"But this you need to discover, every year we start from zero."

"If we do well we will have a very strong team, we can deliver some good results for Ferrari. If we don’t do good enough some other team will have another best pairing drivers. So it’s up to us to deliver and do a good job."

"I think in 2014 the Formula One will change a lot with the new regulations. That will take also some implications from the driving styles so definitely I’m looking forward to discover this new Formula One."

Alonso added that he hopes to replicate Michael Schumacher's record with Ferrari.

"I think Schumacher won [the championship] in the fifth year with Ferrari. I’m in the fifth year now so hopefully I can repeat some of the success that he had."
