Just read that KUB doesn’t know who his engineer will be as people are leaving Williams in droves

To be expected. I do wonder if Paddy is the right guy from an inspirational point of view.

True. Unfortunately, however, he hasn't functioned effectively in a small, incorrectly managed team. And obviously, he hasn't proved anything or convinced SMP or Lawrence Stroll to invest . . . the latter buying another team and paying out a contract break rather than stay another day at Williams.

I often wonder if small teams need a different kind of animal, feisty types like Fred Vasseur . . . or Patrick Head as he was. I'm reminded of football managers and Brian Clough, who turned unfashionable clubs into European champions but lasted just 44 days at Leeds. (Actually, Fred didn't last much longer at Renault.)
