Williams Team Principal Jost Capito has weighed up whether his team’s junior driver Logan Sargeant could make it to Formula 1 in the future…
Sargeant is part of the Williams stable of young drivers, and last had an outing for the team at the post-season Abu Dhabi test last year. He’s scheduled to take part in FP1 in Austin – his home race weekend – and Team Principal Capito has made no secret of how much he rates the youngster.

“He will be in a Formula 1 car in the future, I’m absolutely convinced,” said Capito.
“Of course, we are impressed. You know, it’s his first season in F2. We didn’t put any pressure on him. He has the time to develop and he’s really impressed us with how fast he has got to grips with the car.”
Sargeant has scored two wins in F2, both in July, and lies third in the championship with four rounds remaining. He’ll need to finish in the top five in order to have enough Super Licence points to graduate to Formula 1 – if a seat became available.
Alex Albon has been confirmed for next season while the future of his current team mate Nicholas Latifi past 2022 remains unclear.

“It’s quite tricky to take early decisions on something on a Formula 2 driver as long as the season is not over. So that’s part of the decision making, of course,” continued Capito.
“I think we’ve got various options. And we will finally go for what we believe is the best for the team. But it’s too early to get into details, because we’re not there yet.”
