Ferrari confirms 2011 car name

Ferrari reveals its new car will be called the F150
Ferrari has confirmed that its 2011 F1 challenger, which will be launched at Maranello on Friday, will be known as the F150.

The team has elected to use the name as a tribute to the 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy, with the 'Tricolore' from the national flag set to feature prominently on the livery of the cars of Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa.

“Ferrari is an expression of Italian excellence, talent and creativity,” Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo said. “All the men and women who put so much effort and passion into their work at Maranello share the pride and responsibility of representing our country around the world and it is in this spirit that we chose to dedicate this car to an event that is so important for the whole of Italy.”

Italian president Giorgio Napolitano is reported to have 'expressed his appreciation' of Ferrari's initiative.
