Sergeant finally confirmed at Williams

Williams has finally confirmed that Logan Sergeant will drive for them in the 2023 Formula 1 season

-

The Williams Formula 1 team has officially finalized its lineup for 2023 with American Logan Sergeant replacing Nicholas Latifi at the Grove-based squad.

Sergeant, who finished fourth at this year’s FIA Formula 2 championship, secured the necessary Super License points at this past weekend’s set of races in Abu Dhabi.

In preparation for next season, the American also competed in four consecutive F1 free practice sessions between the United States and Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Sergeant is set to become the first American to race in Formula 1 since Alexander Rossi made five race starts for the Manor Marussia team in 2015.

“It’s a huge honour and a dream come true to be given this opportunity to compete in Formula 1 with Williams Racing,” Sergeant said in a press statement.

“A massive thank you to every person at Williams Racing and Dorilton Motor Sports for the support they’ve given me since the day I first joined the team at the 2021 United States Grand Prix.

“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”.

Capito happy to promote from within the academy

Having signed Sergeant to the Williams academy, team principal Jost Capito was understandably excited about promoting the young driver.

“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,” Capito added.

“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.”

Sergeant will be one of two rookies competing in F1 next season along with McLaren’s Oscar Piastri.

AlphaTauri’s Nyck De Vries is the other driver that will contest a full season for the first time, though the Dutch driver made his proper Formula 1 debut, also with Williams, at this past season’s Italian Grand Prix.
