Born in Florida, United States, Logan Sargeant was born on the 31st of December 2000. He’s competed around the world in the US, UAE, UK and many more. Most recently, he’s raced with Prema Racing in FIA Formula 3, joined with Oscar Piastri and Frederik Vesti. In his 2020 campaign, the American driver finished in 3rd behind Théo Pourchaire with 160 points.
Sargeant started karting professionally in 2008 at the age of 8. He started out with his first race in the Florida Winter Tour in the Rotax Micro Max, finishing in 3rd. In the same category, he competed in the Max Challenge where he also finished 3rd. Logan came back the following year for the Grand Nationals and the Florida Winter Tour again, where he finished first in both. Come to 2011 and 2012 in which he hunted for more successes: Sargeant competed in SKUSA SuperNationals XV, South Florida RMAX Challenge, ROK Cup International Final and 41° Trofeo delle Industrie in which he classified in 1st for all of them. There were many other successes between then and his final year, but his most notable ones were the 23° Trofeo Andrea Margutti, SKUSA SuperNationals XVIII, WSK Night Edition, WSK Champions Cup, CIK-FIA World KF-Junior Championship and WSK Champions Cup, where Logan won all of them.
He moves up to single seaters by competing in Formula 4 UAE with Team Motopark, driving alongside Jonathan Aberdein. Out of the 18 races, he finished on the podium 15 times, totalling 261 points into second in the championship. For his second formula season in 2017, Sargeant competed in Formula 4 British and selected rounds of Formula Renault Eurocup and NEC and V de V Challenge Monoplace. His season in British Formula 4 went quite successful. Driving with Carlin, the American driver claimed 2 wins and 10 podiums, putting him into 3rd with 356 points. In terms of his Formula Renault endeavour, he was unable to gain points in the Eurocup as he was a guest driver and in the Northern Eurocup, he earned 24 points putting him in 23rd. In the V de V Challenge, Logan only competed in three races, but managed to claim three podiums, where one was a win, giving him 99 points, classifying him in 28th. For 2018, he stayed in Formula Renault with R-ace GP, where he had a good season with the French team. With 7 podiums to his name, including 3 wins, Sargeant accumulated 218 points, classifying him in 4th behind Ye Yifei. Similarly, in the Northern European Cup, he earned a win and three podiums, giving him 87 points, placing him into 5th.
Sargeant moved up to Formula 3 with Carlin Buzz Racing, driving alongside Teppei Natori and Felipe Drugovich. It wasn’t much of a successful season, only finishing in the points four times to accumulate 5 points, placing him in 19th. Carlin saw the potential in Logan and brought him to the notorious Macau Grand Prix, joined with Dan Ticktum and Felipe Drugovich. Starting in 10th for the qualifying race, he ended up in 6th, putting him in a good position for the main race, in which he did rightly that to earn himself 3rd position behind Juri Vips.
Logan came back to Formula 3 to prove himself, but this time joined Prema Racing with Oscar Piastri and Frederik Vesti. Despite having some bad luck along the way, Sargeant picked up his first win, plus another, at Silverstone race one, plus a further 4 more podiums. After a DNF in the final race, putting him out of contention for the title, he ended up in 3rd after losing out to Pourchaire by 1 point.
Sargeant has an incredible background to his racing career and with a brand new result to show, we wouldn’t expect any less for the American driver to be seen elsewhere, whether it be in Formula 2 or another series. After a somewhat disappointing end to his season, we’re sure he’s looking out for redemption.
