Under the 2018 regulations, drivers are only allowed three power units per season.

But while the erroneous image was still online, people responded with images of Mercedes-Benz cars under the Ferrari logo and with other internet memes making fun of the company.

Mercedes has delayed the introduction of its latest engine upgrade by one race after facing "quality issues" ahead of this weekend's Canadian Grand Prix.

A spokesman for the Formula One world champion team said on Wednesday: "All Mercedes-powered cars will be running PU1 (the specification used since the start of the season) for this weekend, too, before receiving new units in France".

Montreal is the seventh of 21 rounds this season and the circuit's long straights and its power-sensitive nature means it is often a target for engine upgrades.

Mercedes is leading both championships after six races, with Lewis Hamilton 14 points clear of Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel.

The Brit is a six-time victor on this circuit and is looking for a fourth consecutive triumph on Circuit Gilles Villeneuve to draw level with F1 and Ferrari legend Michael Schumacher as a seven-time victor in North America.
