Logan Sargeant: Carrying America's F1 hopes on his shoulders

Two feature race wins in as many rounds have helped Logan Sargeant to emerge as the closest challenger to runaway Formula 2 points leader Felipe Drugovich. The Williams F1 junior couldn't have timed his rise better, with interest in grand prix racing on the rise in his US homeland, and he could be his country's best shot at getting a driver on the grid for the first time since 2015.

Logan Sargeant’s single-seater career looked like it was over at the end of 2020. Lacking the budget to stay with Prema Racing for a third season at FIA Formula 3 level after coming close to that year's title or the huge financial backing necessary to move up to F2, the American had resigned himself to a move to sportscars.

But Charouz Racing System needed a driver for its F3 team for 2021 – admittedly a downgrade, going from the 2020 champions to the team who finished last – and Sargeant grabbed it with both hands. He went on to finish seventh in the standings with a win and three further podiums, comfortably the best-performing Charouz driver as his teammates chopped and changed during the year.
