WILLIAMS RECRUITS AMERICAN LOGAN SARGEANT
In Austin, where the Texas Grand Prix is taking place this weekend, British Team Williams has made its decision to recruit young American hopeful Logan Sargean – currently in F2 – as the titular driver for the 2023 season, replacing his current Canadian driver, Nicholas Latifi, for whom his career in F1 is coming to an end after three seasons without much success!
But the Williams team sets a prerequisite for the 21-year-old Yankee from Fort Lauderdale, Florida – he was born on December 31, 2000 in Boca Raton, Florida – Nicholas will have to earn enough points in Formula 2 to obtain the essential Super Licence, in order to be able to start in GP.
If he manages to finish in the top five of the 2022 F2 Championship, he will be granted. Note that he is currently in third place before the next and final round in Abu Dhabi.
Third in the Formula 3 Championship in 2020, before moving up to F2 with the British team Carlin, Logan Sargeant would thus become the first American driver to drive in F1 since Alexander Rossi in 2015 and who now drives in the US single-seater Championship of the Indycar Series, of which he won the flagship event, that of the Indy 500 the very prestigious 500 miles in Indianapolis in 2016 and from his first participation!
Remember that in 2023, in the United States, three races will be on the calendar, in Miami, Austin and Las Vegas.
