American racing driver Logan Sargeant is set to make his Formula One debut for Williams F1 team in 2023 – he recently picked his racing number
Logan Sargeant has picked his racing number as he prepares to make his F1 debut next season. He is set to become the first American racer in F1 since Alexander Rossi in 2015. Sargeant will be seen in action for the Williams F1 team next year, replacing Nicholas Latifi. Sargeant drove for Williams in FP1 at the US Grand Prix and has now been officially confirmed as their second F1 driver in 2023.
Logan is a part of the Williams Driver Academy and competed in Formula 2 with Carlin last season. Sargeant finished fourth in the 2022 F2 championship and earned the much-needed FIA super licence. Logan made his FIA Formula 2 Championship debut in 2019 with HWA Racelab. His breakthrough season came this year after he was roped in by Carlin alongside Liam Lawson. At the feature race of the British Grand Prix, he became the first American driver to win a Formula 2 race. Sargeant won the feature race at the F2 Austrian GP the very next week.
