Logan Sargeant hails ‘extra special’ Las Vegas GP qualifying result

Williams pair Alex Albon and Logan Sargeant will start on the third row for the 2023 Las Vegas GP


Williams driver Logan Sargeant was a picture of delight following on from qualifying for the 2023 Las Vegas Grand Prix, as he set the seventh-quickest time.

The American will in fact start from sixth place for Saturday evening’s race, following Carlos Sainz‘s controversial grid penalty, and alongside Alex Albon in the other Williams – meaning the Grove-based team have a great shot at earning big points.

Naturally, then, the Florida native was very pleased with his session on Friday evening as he becomes the first American to start in the top 10 at a home Grand Prix since Eddie Cheever did so at the 1987 Detroit Grand Prix.

“To execute over three sessions and to do it here in Vegas is extra special, and we have a great car here,” Sargeant told the press.

“It’s not easy to deliver on that performance, so to do that is awesome.”

Sargeant’s best F1 weekend so far

Sargeant was also asked if this was his best weekend in F1 to date, the American was unequivocal in his response.

“So far absolutely,” Sargeant said. “We’ve had great race pace the past races so we’ll try to keep that up and see what we can do [Saturday.]

“We have a good race car, we’re going to have an annoying car for the others down the straights. We’re gonna try to attack, but we also have a good way to defend.”

A big opportunity for Williams in the fight for seventh place in the constructors’ standings, and they’ll be desperate to convert – though they have the likes of Carlos Sainz, Lewis Hamilton, Sergio Perez, and the two McLarens all bidding to charge through the field in Las Vegas.
