Logistically it's all a bit of a nightmare:
If its private investors, they need to secure access to a factory, hire a new workforce (many ex staff will have new jobs already), fund a years worth of Ferrari engines upfront, modify the 2014 cars to be legal, and presumably find two heavily funded drivers, all within 5 weeks. And then with an old car, likely fail to achieve 107%.
If it's a McLaren/Honda junior team, they need to pay off Ferrari to terminate their contract, presumably pay off ART for Vandoorne's GP2 season to drive alongside Magnussen, either update the 2014 Marussia's to be legal while also satisfying the rest of the paddock that it isn't just another McLaren, or design another car from scratch whilst providing the same proof. Added to that, whilst McLaren have a large pool of 'junior' engineers, mechanics etc, these all have roles within McLaren during the race weekends so presumably more flyaway staff would be needed.
As I say, a logistical nightmare and only 37 days until FP1. Suspect there will be lots of dispensations required to get any further cars to Melbourne.
