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..

From reddit:

" 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."

Paddy Lowe hasn’t 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 isn’t here but he’s actually at home.

We can’t publish the inside story yet, but we will at some point. Lowe’s side of the story is pretty shady.

We can’t publish for legal reason because it could cause us and Williams legal problems.

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.

He (Paddy) didn’t 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 didn’t realise that Williams wanted to get rid of him.

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

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