Mercedes brought their planned Imola upgrade package to Monaco and, as promised, it looks very different to the original ‘zero-sidepod’ W14, as revealed by the first photographs taken in the pit lane ahead of the race weekend.

This is the first update the team have made from the perspective of accepting that the original concept of both the W13 and W14 was simply uncompetitive. As a consequence, there is a limitation in what they have been able to do using the W14’s existing tub, which was designed around the now-discarded concept but which cannot be changed this year.
