Yeah i put it into photoshop and when playing with the levels, you can bring out the car from the darkness (Although bad quality). It looks like the livery has not changed much but maybe slightly more compact side pods? hard to say really.

Lol, @ Mercedes. Fans unveiled their car for them when they failed to do it themselves.

Bad quality and all that, but still this is just too much. They should just put pics on site and be done with it.

From what I can tell, the best looking beast so far except for the livery.

are you sure the original pic is not fake? kinda dumb of Merc to do this, I would have done pics of the door at various stages of being open and then a separate pic of the car. NOT to hide the pic of the car in the dark.....I dunno the more I think about it the more dodgy it sounds....

Still not clear image, but the tweets are hilarious. One Spanish guy saying " where's Hamilton with his phone when you need him?" and such...I agree.

You can pick appart the website manually in chrome.

So far it looks like they dont actually have all images stored, and just keep updating this one: http://assets.mercedes-amg-f1.com/car/stage.jpg

Thats the image you'll see and if you open up photoshop and tweak the lighting you'll start seeing the car.

Went away, watched some TV, played some games, cooked and ate dinner, faffed around some more. Came back, Mercedes website still down and no image released.

Went on Twitter, Mercedes have tweeted this:

Keep retweeting #F1W04Reveal and the car will be unveiled progressively between now and Monday

... between now and Monday. So it's being unveiled on Monday, like the plan all along. So this campaign was all just an exercise in swimming pool everyone off, melting their webservers and revealing to the world they have even more incompetent departments outside of their design team.

They might as well said to the community to f*ck off...
Like I said before, disrespectful to the fans. Not that I'm a Merc fan myself, I'm with Button wherever he goes, but swimming pool them off like this is not a good way to start a campaign which anyways has big question signs all over it.
ATM2, out. That's enough mockery for one day, I'll goo check out the Sauber. At least they 've kept their word and shown something.

Now THAT looks like an F1 car...

Still, this is worse that Lewis' twitter exploits...maybe they didn't hire him to drive after all - he's their new online marketing manager!

Adrian Newey could have designed a faster car than the Mercedes F1 W04 in less time than their PR team have managed to unveil it.

Not sure if you are being funny or that comment is meant as a genuine criticism of what I wrote, however my comment is clearly a joke.

Rubbishy rubbishy rubbishy rubbish.

How hard was waiting until Monday? The whole thing turned into a shambles, a bit like Mercedes seasons since 2010.

What has patience to do with anything? Merc made a mess of a service they said they would deliver, ppl are upset. I see you are new, so if you are offended by this I suggest you stay away when the season takes off and race day comes.

I think it's more the fact a few of us die hard fans have waited sub-4 hours for a picture.. With little updates or an alternative in place from Mercedes. If they say they will do something; and then crash and burn - its a disappointment. On top of there form in recent seasons, one can be quite justified in feeling angered by a lack of picture..

Joey Zyla reinforcing the reasons why this forum shouldn't play host to 13 year old children.

Mod edit: Will check with the site owners about raising the minimum age of members.

Yeah, not what I expected from Merc, :( ... same as W03 + Vanity Panel.

This is legit. I did it myself.

Unless Merc knew the trick, and the real W04 is totally different.

Anyways, first impression: disreputable

In fairness, when this was announced at midday it did say that the reveal would begin at 4, and then the car would be gradually seen between then and Monday, the speed of such dictated by the amount of Twitter activity. I haven't really spent much time checking back throughout the course of the day, so I clearly don't have as much frustration as those that have done, but nothing from the preamble gave me the impression that a full photo of the car would definitely be released today.

If Petronas takes over the colourscheme any more it'll start looking more like a Sauber...

I wish there was like...Halloween for race cars, where Merc could change their livery to Petronum and put Adrian Newey's face on it. We used to do that sometimes with our cars for big BMW events, with painter's tape. I always Advan liveried my e46.

Anyway, back to my drink...

It would be such an anticlimax if the car were to suckkkkk...

Anyhoo, year 4 for Merc... How long did Toyota and Honda stuck around? I really think next 2-3 year's are make or break and given how they handled Michael, I hope it is the latter.

This is sooo funny, Merc should of just left it alone, however , hd23 enhance is good, the front wing seems to have a different take on the inner winglets from that shot, looks like a pedestal design but the important part of the car ( rear ) will not be seen till Monday.
