Logan Sargeant will race with Alex Albon for Williams in 2023

Williams has officially confirmed the engagement of American driver Logan Sargeant for the next Formula 1 season. Sargeant thus replaced Nicholas Latifi and will be Alex Albon's teammate in the new season. The American entered the last race of the Formula 2 season with the goal of collecting 10 points on the Super License in order to be able to compete in Formula 1, and he achieved this by securing the fourth position in the final drivers' standings.

He will be the first American in Formula 1 since Alexander Rossi in 2015.

“Being a part of the Williams Driver Academy for the past year has given me an important platform to develop as a driver and prepare me for this next chapter.

I’m ready and excited to be a part of this journey as the team looks to progress up the grid”. said Sargeant. “To be able to give Logan the opportunity to compete in Formula 1 for Williams Racing next year after being an integral part of our Driver Academy is a proud moment for the team,” he said.

We’re delighted to officially announce Logan as our driver for next year after qualifying for a Super Licence following the final F2 event of the season in Abu Dhabi,” said Capito. “Logan completes our exciting driver line-up for 2023 alongside Alex.

“Since joining our Driver Academy at the end of 2021, Logan has been able to fully integrate with the team at Grove while on the simulator and more recently at track during the four free practice sessions he’s participated in.

He’s had a strong rookie season in Formula 2, and we are excited to watch him make the step up in Formula 1. We are here to support that journey with him”. “Seeing a driver from the Academy getting in our F1 seat is a motivation for all the other Academy drivers and demonstrates legitimacy of the programme and the platform it provides.

“We are not only preparing him on track, but will be working hard over the winter off track to ensure he’s in the best possible position to start 2023”. He has already driven the Williams car in practice in Austin, Mexico, Brazil and Abu Dhabi, and on Tuesday he will be tested at Yas Marina.
