The future of Logan Sargeant with Williams—and possibly in Formula 1—seems increasingly uncertain, potentially ending as early as before the 2024 season even concludes.

The future of Logan Sargeant with Williams—and possibly in Formula 1—seems increasingly uncertain, potentially ending as early as before the 2024 season even concludes.

Speculation is rife about possible replacements, including Toto Wolff's young talent Kimi Antonelli possibly taking over from Monza, amid parallel rumours about Valtteri Bottas pairing up with Alex Albon in 2025.

Williams' chief, James Vowles, now openly states that Sargeant, aged 23, is fighting to keep his position.

"He's on the ropes. His cockpit is in danger," Vowles revealed to Sky Deutschland following the grand prix at Imola. "He has to deliver."

"I'm helping him on this journey because I want him to be successful. But in the meantime, we're also talking to other drivers because we have to have our lineup ready for 2025, 2026, 2027."

"There will be news on that in a few weeks."

Vowles reassured Sargeant that he will learn about the "danger" of him losing his seat straight from the team, not via the media.

"We've had a frank conversation and it's very difficult to do that," he acknowledged.

Ex-Formula 1 driver Timo Glock commented on the situation, foreseeing a potential early end to Sargeant's tenure in Formula 1.

"There was no way in which he stood out over the weekend," Glock observed at Imola.
