Interview

The hardships that haven’t dented an F2 rookie’s American F1 dream

Faced with no options for 2021, Logan Sargeant’s Formula 1 dreams looked set to crumble. But a last-minute Formula 3 seat and a strong season secured him an F1 junior berth and a Formula 2 drive for 2022. He told Autosport how his transformative season has affected both his personality and his future

“Out of adversity comes opportunity,” Benjamin Franklin once said. And that seems to have been precisely the case for Logan Sargeant, having fought his way through budget struggles and a year with a midfield team to secure a Formula 2 seat for 2022.

Long since tipped as the United States’ best Formula 1 hopeful, Sargeant looked set for big things at the beginning of 2020. Moving from Carlin’s FIA Formula 3 team to reigning champions Prema, he took two wins and six podiums throughout the season. Level on points with team-mate and eventual champion Oscar Piastri heading into the final race of the season at Mugello, an opening lap clash left him to finish third behind the now-Alpine F1 reserve and Sauber junior Theo Pourchaire.
