Preferred candidate Logan Sargeant drives for Williams in the coming season.
Berlin – This means that the last Formula 1 regular cockpit is occupied and the last option for Mick Schumacher after leaving Haas after two years is no longer available. “It is a great honor and a dream come true to receive this opportunity,” said Sargeant. “I am ready and excited to be part of this journey.”
Williams had promised Sargeant the regular cockpit for 2023 alongside Alex Albon if he were to score the necessary points for the premier motorsport class in Formula 2. The 21-year-old American achieved this on Sunday in Abu Dhabi with fifth place in the last Formula 2 race of the season.
After leaving Haas after two years, Mick Schumacher was considered a candidate for a Williams cockpit. For the 23-year-old, a job at Mercedes as a substitute driver is now likely. dpa
