Logan Sargeant makes his F1 debut at the 2023 Bahrain Grand Prix for Williams


Logan Sargeant praised Alex Albon ahead of his Formula 1 debut at the 2023 Bahrain Grand Prix, and said his Williams teammate is the most open he’s had in motorsport.

Sargeant heads to Bahrain after a positive pre-season testing but will face a tough test against Albon who re-invented his F1 career in 2022. However, Sargeant said the pairing has been beneficial so far.

“You know, most drivers are they keep a little bit to themselves,” Sargeant told the press. “But no, I think he’s probably the most open and honest teammate I’ve ever had, he’s super nice to work with.

Sargeant raced alongside fellow rookie Oscar Piastri in Formula 3 and has also been paired with talented juniors Felipe Drugovich, Liam Lawson and Arthur Leclerc.

“Obviously, he’s [Albon] got a lot of experience and super-quick so it’s also really good reference for me,” Sargeant said. “Within the team, I feel like you know, it’s such a healthy environment.

“Everyone’s you know, working towards the same goal, I feel like I’m part of the family after the past year and a half.”

Sargeant full of confidence

Sargeant was on a high ahead of his F1 debut, and said he felt comfortable in his Williams FW45.

Sargeant performed well in pre-season testing as he put in 154 laps on day two and finished with the seventh-best time of the day.

“I feel like that just gave me more confidence in the work that I put in over the offseason to physically be ready for this moment,” Sargeant continued.

“And to get through a day and a half, 200 and something laps completely unfazed was, was a good feeling. And yeah, leaves me in a good headspace coming into the season.

“I feel very happy with where I was in the test and I feel comfortable in the car. I feel like I’ve laid a good foundation and a base to work from so I’m relatively relaxed heading into tomorrow.”
