Logan Sargeant: Driver Profile

Only a few get to experience lift at the pinnacle of motorsport each season, and Logan Sargeant is the latest American competitor on the grid.

Thrown in at the deep end for his debut season with less testing than most drivers get, Sargeant drives for a Williams team who were expected to be at the back this year, but have outperformed predictions.

However, 14 races into the campaign, Sargeant is the only driver to have competed in every race yet failed to score a point, while his impressive team-mate Alex Albon has picked up 21 points.

The Floridian speedster knows he is racing for his future, and at times that desperation shows in his driving, but the team have shown him support and with a strong finish to the season, Sargeant could yet secure his place on next year's grid.

Where is Logan Sargeant from?

Logan Sargeant was born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and is the nephew of billionaire energy and shipping magnate Harry Sargeant III. 

His older brother Dalton competed in stock car and truck racing championships, while Logan moved to Europe as a teenager to pursue a single-seater career.

What was Logan Sargeant's racing record before F1?

Like almost all future Formula 1 drivers, Sargeant began his racing career in karts, at the age of seven. In his first year, he finished third in the Florida Winter Tour and Rotax Max Challenge USA, and won both titles the following year.

After moving to Europe, Sargeant became the first American driver since 1978 to win the Karting World Championship in 2015.

The following season, Sargeant graduated to cars and claimed 15 podiums from 18 races in the Formula 4 UAE Championship, finishing second in the standings despite not winning a race.

Sargeant's rise up the motorsport ladder continued with Formula Renault Eurocup in 2018, Formula 3 Championship in 2019, 2020 and 2021.

For 2022, Sargeant raced in the official F1 feeder series, Formula 2, finishing fourth in the standings after wins in the Silverstone and Red Bull Ring feature races.

Which F1 teams has Logan Sargeant raced for?

At the 2021 United States Grand Prix, it was announced Sargeant had joined the Williams Driver Academy, and he took part in a test session in Abu Dhabi following the last race of the season.

A year later, he made a guest appearance for Williams in free practice in Austin, becoming the first American driver since Alexander Rossi in 2015 to take part in an official Formula 1 session. 

That same weekend, Sargeant was announced as a Williams race driver for 2023, on condition that he finish in the top five of the F2 championship. 

He also drove in free practice sessions in Mexico, Brazil and Abu Dhabi.

What have been Logan Sargeant's best F1 races?

While the Miami Grand Prix should be considered Sargeant's proper home race as a Florida native, he scored his first points in the 2023 United States Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas near Austin, Texas.

He finished the race in 12th place but disqualifications to second-placed Lewis Hamilton and fifth-placed Charles Leclerc saw the American move to 10th.

Another one of Sargeant's best performances came in the Netherlands, where he qualified in the top 10 and was running in the points when he spun off the track and crashed. It initially looked as though Sargeant was to blame, but it turned out that a suspension failure caused the accident.

Is Logan Sargeant improving as an F1 driver?

Sargeant has shown signs of trying too hard at times, and he is also the only driver to have been outqualified by his team-mate in all of the first 18 races.

He has struggled to find consistency, especially after not finishing the Japan or Qatar races which preceded his solid US Grand Prix performance. Williams team principal James Vowles has said he wants to give Sargeant another year on the grid, but the American has yet to sign a contract for 2024.

What are Logan Sargeant's prospects for the rest of this season?

Sargeant needs more strong performances to persuade Williams to keep him in the car for next year, and scoring a point is a good place to start.

Who will Logan Sargeant race for next season?

Williams are the only F1 outfit yet to announce their full driver line-up for next year. Albon has a multi-year contract, meaning Sargeant's current seat is his only potential option to stay in Formula 1.

His cause is helped by the fact that none of the current Williams Academy drivers is competing in Formula 2, but Sargeant will likely have to improve if the team are not to look elsewhere.

If he does leave F1, a move to IndyCar is a well-trodden path for ex-F1 drivers, while he does have some links to the world of sportscar racing after a handful of outings in GT and European Le Mans Series races in 2021.
