Draw your own conclusions.

I'm not expecting Sauber to comply at all with providing the super license or a fitted seat. Or fuel.
If it's just a fine then they'll probably take the hit. More interesting is if there are arrests and seizures/closures to prevent any racing at all. In which case everybody loses!
Have audio from the pit walk when McLaren fired up their Honda, as well as from the Mercedes garage. Might be useful for a direct comparison given I was standing the same distance away from both (and using the same device, that being my iPhone :/).
Interesting to note that it was Hamilton himself feeling his way around the Merc, which is a very rare sight on pit walks, to see drivers. He's keeping his #44, too. But that was probably known already.
Also, the Honda was WAY louder and IMO sounded a shitload better, too.
Is there any interest in me uploading the audio I recorded?
And non-engine related: the Williams livery is actually matte, with only the red/blue stripes being gloss. It's a fucking great look in person, I wonder if there's any practical reason for it?
He paid north of $10m of other people's money for a seat and had a valid contract.
You don't just write that shit off.
