Sargeant sets goal to improve rookie season: Nothing to be satisfied about yet

The American driver said his rookie season has been unsatisfying so far and has pin pointed where he wants to improve.

Logan Sargeant admits that he has not been completely satisfied with his rookie season so far in Formula 1 and has set his goal to improve over the next few races. The American is just one of two drivers yet to score points on the grid in a race and has previously admitted that he has struggled to adapt to the demands of F1 . In Spain he crashed and caused significant damage to his car, while Williams had to withdraw him from the Azerbaijan Sprint race due to another heavy crash in the shootout qualifying. When asked if he was satisfied with his performance so far, he admitted that improvements need to be made to achieve his full potential. "Highs and lows for sure. I think there's there's been good points, there's been bad points," Sargeant told media, including RacingNews365.com . "Looking at myself, very honestly, I think I have to be better. There's nothing to be satisfied about yet. Plenty to work on and play to improve."

Sargeant comes to the Circuit du Gilles Villeneuve for the first time in his career, having not previously raced in F2. He says the aim is to ensure that he has a clean weekend without any dramas, to enable Williams to understand their car upgrades going forward. "That has to be the goal and I think this weekend going to a new track and tricky conditions, we've both had a couple of crashes now so we need to keep it clean," said Sargeant. "Then hopefully both with the upgrade going forward we can we can start to be consistently quicker." Sargeant believes that his potential to get into Q2 during qualifying could be possible with the updates Williams has brought, if he can maximise his potential during the session. He added: "We have been really close to Q2. It's it's extremely, extremely close [in the midfield]. "There are a few things from my side needing to just be a bit better. But then at the same time - without the upgrade - we were just on the backside of Q1 and it's always a bit of a stretch to get there. "If I'm able to extract absolutely everything and perform well then Q2 is on the table."
