ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates – Logan Sargent has received the super license he needs to drive for Williams in Formula 1 and will be the first American on the Formula 1 grid since 2015 when he makes his debut next season.

Team made the news official with the release on Monday.

Sargeant needed to finish at least sixth in the season’s Formula Two standings to qualify for an F1 super licence. Williams previously said the Florida driver would get a spot for 2023 if he met the requirements and helped him do so by giving him time to practice in F1 sessions.

“It is a huge honor and a dream come true to be able to compete in Formula One with Williams Racing,” Sargent said in a press release.

“A huge thank you to all the staff at Williams Racing and Dorilton Motor Sports for the support they have given me since the day I first joined the team at the 2021 US Grand Prix.

“Participating in the Williams Driver Academy last year gave me an important platform to develop as a driver and prepared me for the next chapter.
“I’m ready and excited to be a part of this journey as the team looks to move up the grid.”

Sargent, 21, finished fourth in the F2 standings after finishing fifth in the last race of the season on Sunday.

Sargent received unexpected help during the race when Jack Doohan, one of the drivers who could pass him in the standings, pitted from the lead and lost a wheel on the pit exit. Japan’s Ayumu Iwasa took the win on Sunday ahead of Formula 2 champion Felipe Drugovic, F1 substitute for Aston Martin.

At Williams, Sargeant takes the place in the race, which this year is occupied by Canadian Nicholas Latifi. His teammate will be British-born Thai rider Alex Albon.

The last American driver in F1 was Alexander Rossi, who started in five races for the now defunct Manor Marussia team. Since then, the popularity of Formula One in the United States has skyrocketed as a new audience flocked to the sport thanks to the Neftlix documentary series Move to Survive. The US will host three of next season’s 24 races as Las Vegas joins existing events in Miami and Austin, Texas.

Another American, IndyCar star Colton Herta, was considered for a F1 spot for 2023 with Team AlphaTauri but was denied a license. The points system used to determine who is eligible favors FIA-sanctioned series such as F2 over IndyCar and others.

Rossi was among those who supported Hertha, saying it was clear he had the talent to compete in Formula One.

Feld Entertainment is making an offer for its motorsports, supercross and Monster Jamas well as their touring shows and events such as Disney on Ice, Sesame Street Live, and the Jurassic World Live Tour.
