The Williams team has formalized the arrival for next season of American driver Logan Sargeant, who validated his super-license on Sunday thanks to his good results in Formula 2.
There will be an American driver next season in Formula 1. And it won’t be with the American Haas team, but with the British team at Williams. The arrival of Logan Sargeant was made official on Monday, the day after the last Formula 2 Grand Prix of the season, in which the driver finished fourth in the general classification, which allows him to validate his super-license to drive in F1. The Floridian, who will turn 22 on December 31, gave his impressions on the site of his new team.
« Ct is a huge honor and a dream come true to have this opportunity to compete in Formula 1 with Williams Racing. A huge thank you to everyone at Williams Racing and Dorilton Motor Sports for their support since the day I first joined the team at the 2021 US Grand Prix. Being part of the Williams Driver Academy over the past year has given me an important platform to grow as a pilot and prepare myself for this next chapter. I am ready and excited to be part of this journey as the team looks to move up the grid. »
Williams worst team of 2022
Team boss Jost Capito is also delighted with the arrival of the American, who will be Alexander Albon’s new team-mate: Since joining our Driver Academy at the end of 2021, Logan has been able to integrate fully with the Grove team on the simulator and more recently on the track during the four free practice sessions in which he participated. He had a strong rookie season in Formula 2, and we are delighted to see him progress in Formula 1. We are here to support this journey with him. With only eight points scored this season, the Williams team finished last in the constructors’ standings. It’s up to Sargeant and Albon to do better next year…
