Williams Racing are happy to report that Logan Sargeant will appear in FP2 at this weekend's São Paulo Grand Prix.
Our 21-year-old Academy Driver will take Alex Albon’s place in Saturday’s session as he looks to further acclimatise himself with our FW44.
It will be his third of four Free Practice outings planned for this season; Logan has already taken the hot seat in Austin and Mexico City and is set to return for FP1 in Abu Dhabi.
Our young American will also be in action at Formula One’s post-season Young Driver Test at the Yas Marina Circuit.
Speaking of the opportunity, Logan is understandably excited to be getting another test drive in ahead of Abu Dhabi, saying: “I’m looking forward to getting back in the FW44 for FP2 in São Paulo.
“I can’t wait to keep progressing with the team and building on the experience I gained in Austin and Mexico City.
“To be given the opportunity to drive at such an iconic track like Interlagos with its banked corners and the Senna S is a great feeling.
“A massive thank you once again to everyone at Williams for giving me another chance to get behind the wheel.”

Meanwhile, Williams Racing Head of Vehicle Performance Dave Robson was full of praise for our young American ahead of his third outing in as many F1 weekends, adding: “Logan Sargeant continues his run of FP sessions in the FW44 and this weekend will drive Alex’s car during FP2.
“This is unusual for a Sprint Event and is more difficult than usual as Alex’s car will be in Parc Ferme during FP2.
“However, the experience that Logan will get is invaluable, and giving him another opportunity is a good investment in his future.
“He did an excellent job in Austin and Mexico City and we are confident that he will do so again despite the unusual weekend format.”
