Logan Sargeant currently occupies the second seat at Williams. However, the 23-year-old American driver has faced challenges in the 2024 season, sitting at the bottom of the driver standings with zero points. Despite his potential, Sargeant’s inconsistent performances have raised concerns within the team.

James Vowles  said, “We’ve had a direct conversation, it’s a very hard conversation when you do it, but the simple matter of fact is, […], he is at risk.We are talking to a few other drivers because we have to get our ’25, ’26, ’27 line-up correct.” “I would say a few weeks, you’ll see some potential news.”
