Logan Sargeant is the first American driver to be on the Formula 1 grid since Alexander Rossi in 2015 and the first American to start an F1 season since 2007.
He was born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and like most Formula 1 drivers, he began his racing career in karting. He found early success in the 2015 World Junior Karting Championship before making his car racing debut in Formula 4 United Arab Emirates.
From there, it was a steady climb up the ranks including a move to Europe where he competed in the 2017 British F4 Championship alongside Oscar Piastri, a man he will once again race against in 2023.
In October 2021, he moved a step closer to Formula 1 as he joined the Williams Driver Academy and had his first run out in an F1 car at the post-season test in Abu Dhabi.
A few months later, he made his debut in Formula 2 with HWA Racelab before earning a full-time seat with Carlin, the same team that had given the likes of Sebastian Vettel, Nico Rosberg, Daniel Ricciardo and Lando Norris a chance in previous years.
As he progressed in F2, he became a strong candidate for the Williams seat with Nicholas Latifi confirmed to be departing the team following the end of his contract.
On the weekend of the 2022 United States Grand Prix, Williams team boss Jost Capito announced Sargeant would drive for the team provided he obtained the required number of super licence points which he duly did with a P4 finish in the F2 Championship.
Logan Sargeant will join Formula 1 as one of three rookies on the grid alongside Oscar Piastri and Nyck de Vries. The American tested an F1 car in the 2021 Abu Dhabi post-season test and did so again following the 2022 season.
Logan Sargeant has competed in a variety of motorsport series, most recently Formula 2 with Carlin. He achieved a P4 finish in the 2022 Championship, earning him enough super licence points to take part in the 2023 Formula 1 season.
As well as F2, Sargeant has raced in Formula 4 UAE, Formula Renault Eurocup and Formula 3 as well as the 2021 European Le Mans Series.
According to media reports, Logan Sargeant's net worth is £1.5million although the details of his Williams contract are currently unknown.
He is represented by Infinity Sports Management.
Logan Sargeant was born to Michael Sardou and mother Mallika Sarabhai in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on New Year's Eve in 2000. He has a brother named Dalton Sargeant.
Little is known about his romantic life.
