Also i thought you could only have 2 mechanics on each side of the car helping to change the tires? For sure during Martins stop on the right side of the car there were 3 mechanics involved in changing the right rear tyre. Maybe ive miss understood the rules.
On the first point, the driver is allowed to talk to the team, but they can't reply unless during Safety Cars and Pit Stops. So they played out the drivers talking to the team during the races.

Not sure about point number 2.
