Carlin’s Logan Sargeant will get his Formula 1 debut later this season at the United States Grand Prix, taking over driving duties during Free Practice 1 at the Circuit of the Americas.

The Williams Academy driver will be driving 2019 F2 Vice Champion Nicholas Latifi’s FW44 in October, becoming the first American driver to take part in an F1 weekend since Alexander Rossi back in 2015.

“I’m super excited to be given this opportunity to drive my first Free Practice in Austin,” Sargeant said. “To be given the chance at the US Grand Prix is something extremely special to me.

“A massive thank you to Williams for putting the trust and belief in me to do a good job. The goal for me will be to learn as much as possible in the new generation of cars.

“I’m looking forward to making the most of this experience and really enjoying it.”

Sargeant has taken two victories already during the 2022 F2 campaign and currently sits third in the Drivers’ Championship.

Williams Sporting Director Sven Smeets said that Sargeant's performances in F2 this season have impressed the team along with his work on the simulator at the team's Grove base.

“Logan has demonstrated a great level of ability and maturity so far this season through his accomplishments both on and off the track. He’s delivered race winning performances in Formula 2 matched by his hard work during simulator sessions. It felt only right to reward these achievements with the opportunity for him to take part in a Free Practice session at Austin. We’re looking forward to seeing him get behind the wheel of the FW44 and seeing how his performance and feedback help the team’s preparations for the race in Austin.”
