On that specific point, the F1 pit lane is like the WRC service area. No assistance outside the area/lane.
Is there a rule in WRC specificly stating that assistance can only come from your own team?
There isn't a rule like that in F1.
edit - I've gone through the F1 sporting code again to quote the relevant rule .. but there isn't one to quote. Just rules about where a car can be serviced but not who. Hard to quote something that doesn't exist!
edit 2 - Found the rule in the WRC that has no equiv in F1:
56.2.1 At a remote service zone, the following may work on their car(s):
- For one car, the crew plus up to 4 team personnel. These team personnel shall remain the same while the car is in the zone.
