Logan Sargeant’s race in Miami didn’t end as he’d hoped. A crash with Kevin Magnussen forced him out early. Yet, the American driver managed to keep a mostly positive outlook after the dust had settled. He shared his thoughts on the crash that cut his home Grand Prix short.

Oh, and did you hear? Before this mishap, there was buzz around Williams. They were scrambling to secure a super license for Kimi Antonelli, aiming to get him in before he turns 18. Despite this, Sargeant ended up with another ‘DNF’ beside his name. This time, though, it wasn’t in his hands.

About the crash, Sargeant was somewhat in the dark. “I haven’t seen it back, so can’t really comment,” he admitted. But he recounted the moments vividly. “Saw him on my outside into turn one. He tried to cut back into two. That’s where our paths crossed, and bam, we hit.” It was a disappointing end to what had been an exhilarating weekend.

### Sargeant looks at the positives

Despite the looming threat of losing his seat in Formula One, Sargeant chose to focus on the brighter side of his Miami weekend. “It’s been positive, overall,” he insisted. He believed he had squeezed almost everything he could from the weekend. “A few little bits to improve on, but I’m ready to move on,” he shared with F1TV.

He didn’t shy away from highlighting the weekend’s high points. “The sprint race was a highlight. And qualifying? I was just a tenth off Q2, less than three hundredths, actually. Those are big positives.” Sargeant is optimistic. “Just need to find that little extra, and things will start to look up,” he concluded, hopeful about the future.
