Rookie Logan Sargeant was unsuccessful in outscoring his teammate, Alex Albon. Sargeant’s mediocre P12 finish at the COTA GP put him out of points once again for the 18th race in a row. But, due to the disqualification of Lewis Hamilton and Charles Leclerc for ‘technical infringements’, Sargeant moved up two spots, finally finishing P10 in the race.

Logan Sargeant finally scored his maiden point on his home soil in the US. Sargeant rejoiced at scoring the points and said that it was ‘amazing’ to score his first point. The American also applauded the team effort for scoring the point.

Logan Sargeant said:

It’s amazing to score my first point in F1 on home turf. I’m so proud of this team and myself for the hard work and progress we’ve been making this season.

The rookie, Logan Sargeant, mentioned that the team worked all night before the COTA GP to improve their performance. He explained they focused on adjusting the car’s systems to make it perform better. Sargeant also discussed a mistake at turn 1 that caused him to lose a few positions, stating that he hit a curb at turn 1, which made the engine stall and cost him some places. However, he and his team fought back, giving their best on every lap.

Does this mean Logan Sargeant has secured his seat for the next season?

Relative to his Thai teammate Alex Albon, Sargeant failed to outshine him. While Albon has scored 25 points so far in the season, Sargeant has just scored a single point. Williams has yet to confirm their second driver to be paired up with Albon. But a few more good races from Sargeant will likely seal him for the next year at Williams.

After scoring his maiden point, Sargeant is looking hopeful for a better Mexico City GP. Sargeant even commented on this and said that the team has taken steps in the right direction regarding the COTA GP. And he also added that they hope to move forward to better results at the Mexico GP.

James Vowles, team boss at Williams, has also asked Sargeant to improve his results and told him to ‘earn his pathway’ into F1. Vowles furthered his opinions and said that Albon is there to stay with the team, and Logan is on the right path of development.
