Williams have confirmed Logan Sargeant will retain his seat within the team alongside Alexander Albon for 2024.
It was a challenging rookie season for Sargeant, who became the first American driver to compete full time in the sport for over 15 years. Despite ending the season the lowest ranked driver of any who competed in the full championship, Sargeant took a single point in the United States Grand Prix – fittingly the first point scored by an American driver in three decades.
Despite team principal James Vowles admitting that there had been “elements of inconsistency” in his rookie driver’s performances, Vowles insisted that his team would not make a decision on Sargeant’s future at the team until the end of the season. After more consistent and promising performances in the final races of the season, Williams have announced that Sargeant will continue to race alongside Albon next season.
“I am pleased to continue our journey with Logan into the 2024 season,” Vowles 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 said he was “thrilled” to continue to race in Formula 1 next season.
“It has been an incredible journey with the team so far, and I am grateful for the opportunity to continue developing as a driver within such a talented and dedicated group,” he said.
“We have exciting plans for the future, and I can’t wait to contribute to the team’s success in the coming year.
Sargeant’s confirmation means that the grid for the 2024 season will remain entirely unchanged, with all ten teams retaining the same driver line ups that they ended 2023 with.
