Logan Sargeant F1 Career
On the weekend of the United States Grand Prix in October 2021, it was announced that Sargeant would join the Williams Driver Academy. During the postseason test, he drove the Williams FW43B around the Yas Marina Circuit for the first time. He defined his first ride in an F1 car as a “once-in-a-lifetime experience.”
At the 2022 United States Grand Prix, Sargeant debuted in Formula One practice for Williams. He was the first American driver since Alexander Rossi in 2015 to participate in a weekend session. Williams’ team principal Jost Capito stated that Sargeant’s free practice debut “was both a pleasure and a pressure” Sargeant drove the Williams at the Grand Prix of Mexico City, the Grand Prix of Sao Paulo, and the Grand Prix of Abu Dhabi.
Capito confirmed during the weekend of the 2022 United States Grand Prix that Sargeant would drive for the British constructor in 2023 if he obtained the required Super Licence points, which needed him to finish at least fifth in the F2 championship. Capito also stated that the American’s nationality was not a factor in his promotion. Following F2’s Abu Dhabi main event, Sargeant secured the necessary super license points.
