There's no official TD, but i'm pretty sure Paddy Lowe has a good contract and they're still having to pay him.
Wow, do you really think so? Surely there was some sort of performance or egregious malfeasance clause...of course I do not have a copy of said contract. I would think that if they were having to pay PL, CW could/would/should retaliate by making public his incompetence. Thus, I assume he agreed to take a small severance package and just disappear...crap the Guy could not even put a crap car on the grid on time ( with ample budgets).
Still, your comment about a lack of news does make me ponder the possibility that PL failed due to the sophomoric bureaucracies Williams.
that last one is much more probable on hitting the nail on the head.
Lets not forget Paddy's past success. The guy knows what he's doing and is very much capable.
Hell, he had a run at Williams before, successful.
Though he's no Newey, let's for comparisan say he's Schumacher, or you know what, Mansell.
History of brilliant performance, and he gets a seat in a fresh team and can't make an impression,
he slides off the track all the time, and after 1 race decides to call it quits after the people accuse him of having fallen from grace.
would that sound even remotely logical or presumable? i don't think so.
I'd say the same happened with Paddy Lowe.
By the sound of how things work, doesn't really look like paddy is the main problem. If that was the cause, i think things would have went down a bit different to be honest. Sure, he won't get the full fee if things were going well,
but i'm doubtfull they can simply put him on 'hold' or on a leave, after being in a debacle that's out of PL's hands,
and then don't give him a dime. I'd say he either still gets paid a 'small sum' or got a 'there you go' paycheck and walk out the door please. that, or he's going to resume work later on in the year, who knows.
If any, there's been proof of years of incompentence at Williams, not the other way around.
Offcourse though, that's how i see things.
