Saward doing his best to Captain Obvious impression:
"Elsewhere, the rumours are beginning to build about who will lead the Williams F1 technical team, as it is very clear that Paddy Lowe's leave of absence "for personal reasons" is PR chaff. Lowe is gone and there will no doubt be legal action at some point to find a settlement, but Williams now needs a carpetbeater to come in and get the place up to speed…"

Yes, obvious indeed. How anyone could even begin to imagine that the Technical Director for an F1 team would take, or be given, a legit leave of absence right at the start of a new season, especially when the car the design and production of which they oversaw has so many issues, is beyond me. It really pretty much defines "unthinkable."

In any case, are there any more plausible rumors as to who a replacement might be? Surely, they can't afford to wait all that long or they are effectively throwing away next season as well. It would take some pretty extraordinary sponsors to stick around if that is the course they plan to take. Hell, I've been a fan for just about 40 years and I think I would find that approach pretty challenging to my own rooting interests.
