Williams has formally confirmed that Logan Sargeant will drive for the team in the 2023 Formula 1 season.

Williams CEO and team principal Jost Capito revealed in October that Sargeant would get the vacant 2023 seat if he got the superlicense.

Sargeant finished the 2022 Formula 2 season in 4th place in the standings and collected enough points to be granted the superlicense. On Monday, Williams formally announced that the American will be Alexander Albon’s teammate next season. Thus, Sargeant has completed the 2023 Formula 1 grid.

“It’s a huge honor and a dream come true to be given this opportunity to compete in Formula 1 with Williams Racing,” Sargeant said.

“A massive thank you to every person at Williams Racing and Dorilton Motor Sports for the support they’ve given me since the day I first joined the team at the 2021 United States Grand Prix.

“Being a part of the Williams Driver Academy for the past year has given me an important platform to develop as a driver and prepare me for this next chapter.

“I’m ready and excited to be a part of this journey as the team looks to progress up the grid”.

“We’re delighted to officially announce Logan as our driver for next year after qualifying for a superlicense following the final F2 event of the season in Abu Dhabi,” Capito added.

“Logan completes our exciting driver line-up for 2023 alongside Alex. Since joining our Driver Academy at the end of 2021, Logan has been able to fully integrate with the team at Grove while on the simulator and more recently at the track during the four free practice sessions he’s participated in.

“He’s had a strong rookie season in Formula 2, and we are excited to watch him make the step up in Formula 1. We are here to support that journey with him.”
