Logan Sargeant points to Albon’s unique quality as Williams teammate

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.”
