Logan Sargeant makes shocking claim about 2024 contract

Logan Sargeant is the only driver yet to be confirmed for 2024, with his Williams future seriously in doubt.

Ahead of his final Grand Prix as a rookie, Logan Sargeant is still yet to be informed by Williams if he’ll be given a contract for 2024.

Sargeant was promoted by Williams from Formula 2 for this season, making him the first member of the Williams Driver Academy to feature in Formula 1.

The American driver has endured a turbulent campaign, which has consisted of far too many accidents.

His seat for some time now has been the only one on the grid yet to be confirmed, with team principal James Vowles having insisted that he wants to give Sargeant the entire campaign before a decision is made.

Earlier in the year, it looked like a no-brainer that he’d be dropped for 2024, especially after he crashed heavily in Q1 at the Japanese Grand Prix.

However, the young driver has improved considerably over recent races, with him having made his first Q3 appearance of his F1 career last weekend at the Las Vegas Grand Prix.

Sargeant is also now an F1 point scorer, after he finished P10 at his home race – the United States Grand Prix.

His pace has been much better in recent rounds, giving him hope that he can end his maiden season with a strong performance at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

The young American is just trying his best to do a good job, with him currently not seeing “any issues” as to why he shouldn’t be given a second season by the Grove-based outfit.

“It’s a good question – honestly, I don’t know,” Sargeant said, as reported by F1i.com.

“But for me it’s just a case of taking it race by race. I feel like, from a driving point of view, everything has been getting much better in the past I don’t know however many rounds.

“I’m just trying to do my job to the best I can. And I think with how it’s been going recently, I don’t see any issues.”

Reflecting on his debut F1 campaign, Sargeant has labelled his Q3 appearance in Sin City as the highlight of his year.

“I able to finally put it together over three qualifying sessions,” Sargeant said. “[That] was really nice.

“Helped by the fact that we had a quick car in Vegas, for sure. But that was definitely very much the highlight.”
