Williams driver Logan Sargeant believes that Silverstone will be the track the team have the most success at this season.

The American rookie was speaking on the Beyond The Grid Podcast after Sunday’s race in Monaco.

Logan Sargeant finished a disappointing 18th in arguably the toughest race on the season.

He was less than a tenth away from getting his car into Q2 in qualifying, but struggled in the race itself.

The Williams isn’t suited to slow tracks with few long straights.

That combined with Sargent’s inexperience compared to his rivals and the treacherous weather conditions made for a tough race.

Only Kevin Magnussen finished the race behind him after some very suspect strategy calls from Haas.

However, Sargeant is confident that his Williams car will perform well at their home race in Silverstone.

It’s a track he knows well, having won there in both Formula 3 and Formula 2.

Asked about what his goals were for the season, Sargeant said: “First things first I want to get to a point where I’m really comfortable in this car and to have the confidence to go out there and really push earlier on and trust what’s underneath me.

“I think that comes with going to tracks I know, but it’s about trying to get to a point where I’m extracting all of the performance from the car week in and week out and that’s where I want to get to.

“I love GP tracks, I’m going to quite a few tracks now that I’m extremely quick at, we’re going to do our best to get some points there.

Tom Clarkson followed this question up by asking Sargeant to name one track he thinks he’ll be fastest at and said: “Silverstone. The car will be good and I’ll be good there.”

Of all the rookies in this Formula 1 season, Sargeant is arguably in the slowest car in the paddock.

He’s not struggling as much as Nyck De Vries, although he would like to be racing further up the grid.

The Williams should perform well at a very fast Silverstone track and Sargeant’s previous experience will help there.

He’ll be hoping he scores his first F1 point before reaching the UK, however, it might offer the perfect opportunity for him to break his duck.
