After Ford filed a legal injuction regarding Ferrari's use of the name "F150″ for their new Formula 1 car, the Italian supercar manufacturer has bowed to legal pressure and re-dubbed their entrant the "F150th Italia".

While Ford's ubiquitous pick-up truck, the F-150, could never be confused with the purpose built race car, evidently someone in Ferrari's legal department thought it was a prudent move. The Ferrari was dubbed the "F150″ in honor of the 150th anniversary of Italy's unification.
