However, on Wednesday Mercedes announced that the introduction of PU2 has been delayed until the following round of the season at the returning French Grand Prix.

Mercedes has postponed the engine update it planned to introduce for its cars and customers at this weekend's Canadian Grand Prix.

Renault, which supplies its own team as well as McLaren and Red Bull, and Toro Rosso's partner Honda are planning to bring upgraded power units to Canada.

"All Mercedes-powered cars will be running PU1 for this weekend, too, before receiving new units in France".

Mercedes lead Ferrari by 22 points in the constructors' standings going into the Canadian Grand Prix while Hamilton is ahead of Vettel by 14 in the drivers' equivalent. If the four-times world champion wins again on Sunday he will equal Michael Schumacher's record of seven victories in Montreal.

The Silver Arrows were set to use their second power unit of the season at the seventh race of the 21-race season in Montreal.

Another went even further, putting the Ferrari slogan Forza Ferrari alongside a GIF of a Mercedes Benz auto ornament.
