Sargeant highlights Williams expectations in bid to keep F1 seat

Logan Sargeant is the only full-time F1 driver in 2023 yet to score points


Williams driver Logan Sargeant admits he had clear expectations from his team in order to maintain his seat on the Formula 1 grid in 2024.

Sargeant‘s seat at Williams is the only one yet to be filled for next year and he is under pressure after consistently being outperformed by teammate Alexander Albon.

“[I’m not being asked] to deliver anything special,” Sargeant, who retired last time out at the 2023 Qatar Grand Prix due to sickness, told the media. “I just to be consistent and clean, that’s been my goal weekend in and out, to have consistent and clean races.”

Albon has been able to adapt to his car’s upgrades throughout the season and delivered some very impressive results in qualifying and the race, including five points finishes.

Sargeant‘s best result, came at the British Grand Prix, where he finished in 11th, and he is the only full-time driver to not score points in 2023.

“It’s definitely been frustrating at times, for sure,” said Sargeant. “But at the same time I feel like since the summer break, I’ve really sort of found the speed again.

“It’s just trying to put it all together when it matters is key, and especially you only get one lap at it in qualifying and it’s either good or not. That’s the difficulty. But I feel like it is coming back to me.”
