Logan Sargeant is going to be partnering with Alex Albon at Williams next year, should he be able to obtain the FIA Super License. To do that, the American needs to collect a total of 40 points.
His road to that tally won’t be easy though, but the team is ready to give him additional free practice outings, where he could get up to 30 points. What’s more, Sargeant needs to be flawless – no mistakes can be made. Thankfully, his first taste of the FW44 went pretty smoothly in the first Free Practice session for the United States Grand Prix.
In addition to that, he needs to collect at least 10 points from his Formula 2 championship result. This corresponds to 6th place in the final standings, with 5th and 4th giving him 20 and 30 points, respectively. Meanwhile, finishing in the top three (with 3rd place being the only realistic option) will give him the full 40 points needed for a Super License.
|1. Felipe Drugovich||241|
|2. Théo Pourchaire||164|
|3. Logan Sargeant||135|
|4. Jack Doohan||126|
|5. Jehan Daruvala||126|
|6. Enzo Fittipaldi||126|
|7. Liam Lawson||123|
However, Sargeant is way too close to 7th place than he would have wanted. A bit too close for comfort, he sits only 12 points ahead of Liam Lawson in the F2 Championship. Indeed, having an F1 seat pretty much waiting for him can play a big role in the final F2 race weekend in Yas Marina.
As long as he gets his Super License, Sargeant would become the first American in the sport in 7 years. The last one was Alexander Rossi who drove for Marussia in a not so memorable 5-race career.
