they can also swap compnents eg typically wheels, but engines is also ok

the spare engines are not marked untill installed and Scrutineers notified, the spare engines can come from your assistance truck, another competitor or the moon, just so long as they get checked and marked before the next stage, or in this case during the rest day

Also Fishy's motor came from a T4 race truck (not a T5 Assistance truck which is not legal in stage) that provides in stage support where needed, this is also fully legal, lots of the car and top moto teams do this
