Williams wASvictims of an ill-timed Safety Car which prevented their chances of converting a decent qualifying session into a points finish.
Williams driver Logan Sargeant believes that their chances of scoring points in the Las Vegas Grand Prix were ruined when they were unable to take advantage of the second Safety Car period. Sargeant qualified in sixth place and was hopeful for a strong performance due to the team’s straight-line speed. He was running in the points early in the race, but a Safety Car for debris came out after most of the field had already made their first stops. However, Williams had already pitted Sargeant six laps prior, resulting in him losing positions to others who had fresher tires. Sargeant feels that this decision effectively ended their hopes of points, with him ultimately finishing in 16th place and teammate Alex Albon in 12th.
