The Williams Driver Academy has provided me with an important platform to develop as a driver and prepare for this next chapter as the team strives to step up. I am ready and excited to be a part of the journey.”

Speaking about the new addition to the team, Team Principal Capito added: “We are delighted to officially announce Logan as our driver next year after qualifying for the Super License at the last F2 event of the season in Abu Dhabi. Alex (Alban) completes our driver line-up for 2023. Since joining our driver academy at the end of the year, Logan has been able to fully integrate with the team at Grove while in the simulator, and recently took part in four free track practice sessions. He’s had a strong new season in Formula 2 and we’re excited to see him progress in Formula 1. We are here to join him.”
