Biography of F1 driver Logan Sargeant

Logan Sargeant makes his Formula 1 debut in 2023 with Williams, having been part of their driver academy since 2021.

He is the first American to have a full-time race seat since Scott Speed in 2006, who drove for Toro Rosso, and first American on the grid since Alexander Rossi in 2015.

Here is everything you need to know about Logan Sargeant.

Sargeant's early career

Born in Fort Lauderdale in 2000, Sargeant's career began in karting in 2008 when he competed in regional and national championships in the US.

In 2015 Sargeant won the FIA's premier karting contest, the Karting World Championship, becoming the first American to win a FIA karting championship since Lake Speed in 1978.

From there he moved to junior Formula championships making his debut in the Formula 4 UAE Championship, before switching to British F4 with Carlin. He was paired with fellow rookie Oscar Piastri and finished third in the championship.

In 2018 he made the full-time switch to Formula Renault Eurocup, winning three races and finishing fourth in the championship.

Stepping up to Formula 3

Sargeant returned to Carlin in 2019 to make his debut in the F1 support series, Formula 3. He scored points at four races and finished 19th in the championship alongside future F2 champion Felipe Drugovich who was 16th.

In 2020 he moved to the successful Prema outfit, partnering with Piastri once again. He took his first win in the second feature race at the Silverstone round, along with a sprint race win at Belgium.

His two wins and four podiums put Sargeant in championship contention going into the final weekend, but he only managed to score eight points, and he finished third in the standings - four points behind eventual champion Piastri.

Initially Sargeant announced that he would not compete in the 2021 season due to financial reasons, but he later went on to test for Charouz in the pre-season. This led to a drive for the rest of the season, achieving three podiums and a race win at the Sprint race in Russia late in the season. He finished the year seventh having amassed 102 points.

Making his mark in Formula 2

Sargeant made his debut in Formula 2 at the penultimate round in 2021 at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit with HWA Racelab. He finished his first race in P16, but had to retire in the second race due to a technical issue.

During this period he also went on to be signed up as a Williams Development Driver, and got his first taste of F1 machinery at the post-season test in Abu Dhabi. He described his first time as an "experience of a lifetime."

In 2022 he made the switch to Carlin alongside Liam Lawson. During the feature race at the Silverstone round he became the first American driver to win a Formula 2 race.

He inherited victory in F2 later in the year at the Austrian round, when both Richard Verschoor and Jehan Daruvala were handed penalties post-race.

Despite finishing fourth in the championship, Sargeant was handed the rookie of the year award at the end of the season.

Sargeant makes first full-season debut

Sargeant initially did not have enough super licence points to make a full-time race debut in 2022, so Williams gave him extra FP1 outings.

His first FP1 outing was at his home race in Austin, where he described it as "different than expected" compared to racing in F2. He later did outings at the Mexican, Brazilian and Abu Dhabi Grands Prix, eventually obtaining enough points to be granted a superlicence.

Sargeant was later confirmed to be driving alongside Alex Albon in the 2023 season, participating in the post-season test with Williams with the race number 2 on the car.

Sven Smeets, Sporting Director at Williams, said the team is proud to give Sargeant an opportunity in F1.
