Surely the happy ending the Williams Academy driver was hoping for, as he crosses the line in P6 in the last Feature Race in Abu Dhabi, scoring enough points to officially obtain his super license.

According to Williams F1 team principal Jost Capito, the American would have officially taken over Latifi’s F1 seat in 2023, if he had obtained his super license by the end of the 2022 season.

Despite an altercation with Kiwi driver Liam Lawson, Sargeant managed to keep his race clean and finally overtake Israelian Nissany and Belgian Cordeel.

“It was a massive step forward from yesterday”, states the 21-year-old. “We had really good pace for the most part, but the race didn’t quite fall our way, with getting forced off in Lap 1 and pitting two laps too late”.

Not the optimal strategic move for the Carlin team, as it forced the future F1 driver to fight an “uphill battle” once back on track, after losing abundant ground.

Sargeant will be testing his new car next Tuesday, after the F1 season finale today in Abu Dhabi. This won’t though be the first time for the driver from Fort Lauderdale, who got a call to drive in FP1 at the American Grand Prix held in Texas back in October.

“I think the F1 car suits my driving style the best. It has a lot more grip and allows to combine a lot more unbraking and exits”, commented Logan.

We will be seeing the newest addition to the F1 grid racing alongside Alex Albon in the 2023 season.
