Sargeant adamant F1 unknowns have no effect on form

The American rookie has faced new circuits as well as the added pressures of F1 in the opening eight races.

Williams driver Logan Sargeant has insisted his form has not been held back by a flurry of unknown race tracks at the start of his rookie campaign. The American is one of only two to have not scored points in F1 this term alongside fellow rookie Nyck de Vries, despite teammate Alex Albon securing two top 10s. Sargeant experienced some teething issues early in the season with incidents curbing his learning process, though that could be excused by a number of circuits not being a part of the F2 and F3 calendar. Of the opening eight races, Australia, Miami and Canada were new experiences for Sargeant to contend with whilst bringing himself up to speed in the top echelon of single-seater racing. On whether he was excited for the run of more familiar European tracks through the summer, Sargeant told media, including RacingNews365.com : "Definitely. "I don't think it's held me back, I think it has all been very beneficial learning. No matter the situation, I try to get the most out of it and learn as much as I can from it for the future. "For sure, excited to go into July and string together some European races."

Piastri talks

Sargeant is one of three rookies on the grid along with AlphaTauri's Nyck de Vries and McLaren driver Oscar Piastri, who has enjoyed a promising start to his F1 career despite struggles for the Woking-based outfit. Asked if he had conversed with his fellow rookies to discuss the challenges of F1, Sargeant explained: "We are all so busy, we don't get too much time to talk to each other. "I am pretty good friends with Oscar, so speaking to him, we both acknowledge it's extremely difficult, extremely tough, but we don't get into too much detail."
