Williams has confirmed that Logan Sargeant will remain with the team for a second Formula 1 season.

Sargeant joined Williams for his rookie campaign this year after a season in Formula 2 but endured a challenging campaign.

Having shown flashes of speed in the early stages of the season, a handful of accidents after the summer break placed doubt on Sargeant's position in the team.

However, the Grove-based squad has opted to re-sign the American driver for another season, waiting until after the end of his rookie campaign to make the decision.

“I am thrilled to be continuing with Williams Racing for the 2024 season,” Sargeant said.

“It has been an incredible journey with the team so far, and I am grateful for the opportunity to continue developing as a driver within such a talented and dedicated group.

‘We have exciting plans for the future, and I can't wait to contribute to the team's success in the coming year."

Vowles hails Sargeant's 'immense skill'

Sargeant ended the season with one point to his name which he scored at the United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas.

Williams ended the campaign seventh in the championship standings, taking its highest result since the 2017 season.

Team Principal James Vowles added: "I am pleased to continue our journey with Logan into the 2024 season.

“Logan has demonstrated immense skill whilst under the pressure of the world stage, making him a perfect fit for our team.

“We have great confidence in his abilities and believe that together we can achieve even greater success in the upcoming season.
