Three grands prix in the US will certainly add pressure, says Logan Sargeant, but it won’t be a problem. The sport is growing in popularity in America and Sargent’s arrival will certainly contribute to that. Alexander Rossi was the last American driver in Formula 1 and that is why the Williams driver is proud to represent his country.
Sargeant says he finds it very special to be the first American driver in a long time. “With three majors in America, that will be exciting. Miami is right on my doorstep, so I am really looking forward to it.” Sky Sports F1. “There may be a little bit of extra pressure, but at the end of the day I push myself a lot and the expectations are high. We just have to get the job done,” says the driver with good expectations.
The sergeant will certainly feel the pressure, but finds it special to finally be able to fulfill his dream. “It is definitely a dream come true,” he said. “I feel like a hard-working 16-year-old, and the weight has lifted my shoulders that we’ve come this far. And then you immediately think: the real work now begins to preserve my place in Formula 1 in the future, ”adds the driver.
Sergeant: “Williams’ seat was ready when I did my job.”
With only twenty drivers in Formula 1, everything must come together to race there. “The stars have to align perfectly and they have to be in the right place at the right time,” Sargent explains. “Williams has supported me so much since the end of last year and has given me so much confidence throughout the year that this chair was there to take her when I did my work.”
However, it was still exciting that the 22-year-old could actually get into the top division, because he still had to achieve a good result in Formula 2 to get enough super license points. “Going into that last round I had to get my super license and the pressure was on to maximize the weekend and we did. I’m just looking forward to doing the best I can for them in the future,” Sargent concludes with satisfaction.
