Mercedes have finally revealed their Formula 1 upgrade package to the W14 ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix - and it is a massive change from the zero sidepods.

Originally set to debut at Imola before the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix was cancelled, the raft of upgrades are designed to bring Mercedes more in line with Red Bull and Ferrari in terms of car concept after their unique 'no sidepods' approach ultimately proved flawed.

The upgrades - snapped by RacingNews365's photographer out in Monte Carlo, Michael Potts - show a more conventional sidepod design, with tweaks to the front suspension, similar to Red Bull's anti-dive layout also featuring.

Toto Wolff has warned that the car will not immediately propel Lewis Hamilton or George Russell into fighting for wins or the championship, but as a starting point to return Mercedes to front-running ways.

Do you think Mercedes will be able to win a race with the 'W14B' in 2023 with these upgrades? Let us know in the comments section!
