F1 2024 grid set as Logan Sargeant stays with Williams

The 2023 rookie will enter his "sophomore" year in the sport

-

Logan Sargeant will drive for Williams in 2024’s Formula 1 season after scoring his first career points in the sport as a rookie at the 2023 United States Grand Prix.

He became the first American driver to record points at an F1 race in 30 years and, despite being soundly outperformed by Alex Albon across the season, has done enough to retain his drive from would-be usurpers.

“I am thrilled to be continuing with Williams Racing for the 2024 season,” Sargeant said in a statement. “It has been an incredible journey with the team so far.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to continue developing as a driver within such a talented and dedicated group. We have exciting plans for the future, and I can’t wait to contribute to the team’s success in the coming year.”

Second season

The signature offers the Grove-based team stability heading into next year by retaining their driver line-up who are both deeply involved in car development and understanding.

It comes on the back of a successful season for Williams as they finished seventh in the constructors’ championship with several points finishes, ahead of AlphaTauri, Alfa Romeo and Haas.

“I am pleased to continue our journey with Logan into the 2024 season,” James Vowles, team principal, said. “Logan has demonstrated immense skill whilst under the pressure of the world stage, making him a perfect fit for our team.

“We have great confidence in his abilities and believe that together we can achieve even greater success in the upcoming season.”

Sargeant joined the team in 2023 after finishing fourth in Formula 2 with two feature race wins in the series regarded as the final step before joining F1. He was backed since 2021 as a member of the Williams Driver Academy.
