True. Unfortunately, however, he hasn't functioned effectively in a small, incorrectly managed team. see, Paddy is a Williams executive. As such, he can be either a part of the problem, or a part of the solution. What he cannot be, is an entity independent of the problem - for the team are not managed correctly/incorrectly for him, it is him, who manage teams correctly or incorrectly.

Of course it can happen that you are a hell of a leader, and join a company where you get accountability, but no freedom necessary to make an impact. Then, however, you simply choose to leave because as a seasoned leader you know you'll fail. If this is the case, Paddy should have left a while ago.

Is Paddy a part of the problem or a part of the solution? Well, he has not left, so he feels that he was given what it takes to perform. Unfortunately, he failed - that can happen to the best, maybe he needed more time to fix the issues...but he has his last chance to prove he is a part of the solution. He may be also a part of the problem, in the sense that his impact is irrelevant - Mercedes or McLaren teams would make a good car with or without Paddy, Williams would fail regardless. Then he should be given a boot.
