F1 News: Steiner Predicts Sargeant’s Exit, Norris Anticipated for Spain

James Vowles has made it clear that Carlos Sainz is his top pick for 2025, which might mean Logan Sargeant‘s days in Formula 1 are numbered. Guenther Steiner shares his views on the American driver, while Lando Norris talks about the upcoming Spanish Grand Prix and Alonso offers retirement advice to Max Verstappen.

Sargeant’s Future with Williams

Vowles wants Carlos Sainz, and with new FIA rules allowing 17-year-olds to get a super license under certain conditions, Steiner thinks Sargeant could be out by summer if he doesn’t improve.

Sargeant has only scored one point in F1 so far, finishing 10th at the US Grand Prix after Hamilton and Leclerc were disqualified. This year, he hasn’t finished higher than 15th and didn’t complete two races.

The team applied for a super license for Kimi Antonelli earlier this season. The FIA recently changed its rules to allow drivers as young as 17 to receive a license in special cases.

Norris Looks Forward to Spanish GP

Lando Norris is thrilled about the Spanish Grand Prix after seeing five cars fight for the lead in Canada. He’s excited because McLaren is performing well on different tracks now, and more cars could be competing for wins.

Norris praised his competitors after finishing second in Canada, especially Mercedes. Fans love how unpredictable this season has become! The Silver Arrows have struggled since 2022 but showed progress with Russell starting on pole and finishing third in Canada.

Verschuur Criticizes Perez

Sergio Perez hasn’t finished a race since signing his new Red Bull contract. In Monaco, he qualified 16th and crashed early on. In Canada, he again started from P16 and crashed on Lap 51 before retiring in the pit lane.

This led former driver Verschuur to harshly criticize Perez, saying Red Bull should “get rid of the guy.” He also joked that Perez could save money by not driving at all!

Alonso’s Advice to Verstappen

Max Verstappen often says he won’t race until he’s 40 like Hamilton or Alonso. But Alonso has some advice for him.

Alonso started racing in F1 back in 2001 with Minardi and went through several teams including Renault, McLaren, Ferrari, Alpine, and now Aston Martin. He retired at the end of 2019 but came back with Alpine in 2021.

He thinks Verstappen might feel like him: “I found even when I decided to stop; I couldn’t.”
