Mike O'Driscoll seems to have given some information on the Paddy front. Giving him the boot seems to be a serious option after all according to a friend of mine at a F1 news site who have seemingly spoken with Mike.
Cant verify the truth tho..

And who from within would be able to fill his shoes then this year? At the moment most senior technical staff from other teams will most likely avoid Williams like the plague.

From reddit:

"GPToday.net posted the following rumours in their chat today. I tried to translate them for you, but posted the original dutch chat messages from their official account on their chat."

ó

Paddy Lowe hasnít been to the factory in days. We was there last week for about an hour to pick up some paperwork after that he left saying that everything will be alright and that he was going to Barcelona.

However he isnít here but heís actually at home.

ó

We canít publish the inside story yet, but we will at some point. Loweís side of the story is pretty shady.

ó

We canít publish for legal reason because it could cause us and Williams legal problems.

ó

Williams wanted to fire Lowe in the 2018 summer break. They had an oral agreement with James Key but he decided to go to McLaren instead.

ó

He (Paddy) didnít realise it until recently that he was going to be fired. Dieter (Rencken?) has had a conversation with him recently, and he knows him quite well, and he (Paddy) truly didnít realise that Williams wanted to get rid of him.

But there is no one with his experience, knowledge about at the moment. It would put us back months and again next year as if we recruited from F1 thereís gardening leave to sort out.

Darn
We have our first red flag of the day. Looks to be a technical issue with the Haas.
11:38:15

Red flag. It's Fittipaldi.

Anyway, let hope this 42 is a 'Rokit' and all will be forgiven.

darn track status is Red because of Fittipaldi

11:49 The tooting horns in the pitlane indicate the car is back, so we should be green soon.

By now we all know this isnt true. We have seen the pictures of Paddy up here. So those rumors seem to be busted.

It would be mad now to fire Paddy before a wheel has turned, we don't have any potential replacement, would just add to chaos. McLaren announced Key end of July, so we could have been in discussions but surely if they wanted rid they'd not have waited till three months before the season start? Feels like we've become the pre season test column filler as the usual Ferrari/ McLaren issues aren't occurring.

They could have posted this before Paddy has shown on the track today.

12:04 Some part of the McLaren's bodywork has just flown off on the main straight. It was something from the left-hand side, behind the front-left wheel.
