American Logan Sargeant will be second driver at Williams in 2023

The American will be joining the team if he obtains the required Super Licence points before the end of 2022.

American Logan Sargeant has been announced as Williams' second driver for 2023, replacing Nicholas Latifi. Williams Team Principal Jost Capito confirmed that he will get the seat next year if he obtains enough Super Licence points. "After Abu Dhabi he will be our second driver next year," Capito told media. "I am a fan of getting young drivers as quick through as possible in F1 because the series below, the cars compared to F1 are like trucks. "So, get him in as quickly as possible and find out if he's capable to stay in F1 for a long time."

How Sargeant can obtain an F1 superlicence

Sargeant completed over 100km in FP1 for the US GP without issues, which means he gets one more Super Licence point. This moves him on to a total of 28, he will need 40 to race in F1 next year but could obtain enough if he finishes in the top five of the Formula 2 championship. With two races left at Abu Dhabi later this year, Sargeant is currently sitting third in the Drivers Championship. The team said he will get two more FP1 sessions this year at Mexico and Abu Dhabi, and will take part in the end of season Abu Dhabi Young Driver Test. If he completes a clean 100km in both those FP1 sessions without any penalty points, he could also gain enough Super Licence points if he completes the F2 season in sixth overall.
