F1: Ferrari's new race car called the F138

Rome, January 30 - Ferrari said Wednesday that their race car for this year's Formula One championship will be called the F138. The Italian glamour team said the name combined a reference to this year, 2013, with the number of cylinder's of the car - eight. This is "partly to mark the fact that this will be the last year that the V8 engine configuration will be used in Formula One" after eight years, Ferrari said in a statement. The new car will be presented Friday. "With its fifty eight previous cars, the Scuderia is the only team to have taken part in every year of the championship and holds all the records in terms of titles won (31: 15 Drivers' and 16 Constructors') Grand Prix wins (219) pole positions (207) and fastest race laps (228)," Ferrari added.
