Auto sport is reporting that both Paddy and Claire have media events scheduled for Wednesday. I hope we finally get some answers about what has been happening, who is chiefly responsible, and what their status in the team is going forward.

I'm afraid Paddy will announce his resignation at that meeting (Sm77)

At the best companies deadlines are not met at times. You dont hear people immediately getting fired over this. In effect we have missed 25% of the testing schedule due to an issue that was addressed too late. Once things kicked into high gear Williams has delivered astounding work in getting the car ready in 4 days what normally would take a week to complete.
I reckon Paddy staying put, learning from this annoying situation and just move on. It is the media and (no offense) fans like you who keep sticking to the negative side of it. Fact is that we are able to get about 62.5% or 75% of testing done. It is less than the team has anticipated and it has given a lot of stress to the entire team. But people need to calm down and look at the situation the way it is. And it is not as bad as it looks.
Negativism should be brought back if the car proves to be a dog. But to be honest, I think Force Canada will be the backmarker this year. Not us.

you're right Alan ... but no wonder I'm pessimistic. I've been a fan of Williams team for 25 years, and for the most part the seasons have been either weak or catastrophic. It's not easy to be a fan of Williams team. Sometimes, I say to me self, that Williams fan can ONLY be a very veeeery mentally strong person, or a masochist ! (Sm116) Still, I will never give up and I will support Williams team as long as it exists. I love Williams team and I take it (almost) as my family (Sm116).
