Albon squeezed into the top 10 in FP2, but Sargeant feels he can pinpoint where he needs to improve heading into Saturday’s qualifying session.
“It was a tricky day, not the smoothest,” he told F1TV. “The important part is that we have two cars back in one piece after this Friday and I just feel like I just didn’t quite commit as much. I know what I need to do tomorrow and it’s quite clear when I look at the data.”
The 22-year-old added that the Grove-based outfit “have a little bit of setup work” to carry out before going into qualifying and, while starting in the top 10 is a possibility, it will by no means be easy to achieve.
“I think it’s going to be tough,” he added.” It’s going to be tight and I think it is really close between everyone. I think it’s going to have to come down to having to put absolutely perfect committed laps and that’ll be the difference so we’ll see tomorrow.”
Williams is currently last in the Constructors’ Standings after four rounds, but the British side sits just seven points adrift of sixth-placed Alpine as another tight midfield battle shapes up this year.
