Williams has announced the signing of Logan Sargeant, who has officially joined the team’s driver academy as part of a long-term agreement.
Sargeant most recently competed in his third FIA Formula 3 campaign, ending the 2021 championship in seventh with four podiums, which included a race victory at the Sochi Autodrom.
In 2020, the American was in contention for the F3 title but missed out on the championship at the final round.
“I am delighted to be joining the Williams Racing Driver Academy,” Sargeant said.
“It’s a team with not only a fantastic history, but a great track record of bringing young talent into Formula 1. I am really excited to begin working with the team and can’t wait to hit the ground running.”
As part of his role, Williams says that the 20-year-old will take part in simulator work and assist with car development, becoming “fully immersed into the team both trackside and at the factory in Grove”.
Williams has not yet outlined what Sargeant’s 2022 racing plans will be, but stated they will be announced in due course.
Williams CEO Jost Capito added: “I am incredibly pleased to welcome Logan to the Williams Racing Driver Academy.
“He’s demonstrated his talent in FIA Formula 3, consistently delivering strong results in an extremely competitive field. I’m proud that Williams will play a part in supporting the progression and growth of another talented young driver.”
Last month, Williams confirmed that it had signed Alexander Albon as a full-time driver for next year alongside Nicholas Latifi, with George Russell departing for Mercedes.
