Williams Racing's team principal, James Vowles, has revealed that the team is exploring three potential driver options for the 2025 F1 season, placing current driver Logan Sargeant's future with the team in a precarious position.

Speaking to the media ahead of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, Vowles responded to the recent confirmation that the Grove-based squad has signed an extended contract with Alex Albon whilst also revealing that they are still weighing up their options for the other 2025 seat. Vowles commented, as quoted by Pit Pass:

"I don't want to sully what I think is a really positive message, that we have someone committing to the long-term future of Williams. I'm looking, at the moment, at about three options for 2025 and 2026. It's as simple as that.

"When we're in a position where I can talk about it openly, which won't be long, we will do."

Additionally, the talk about potential new entrants into the Williams team adds layers of speculation and enthusiasm. Names like Kimi Antonelli, Valtteri Bottas, and Esteban Ocon have surfaced as possible candidates. Antonelli comes highly recommended, yet concerns remain about putting the young talent into a Formula One seat prematurely.

Vowles went on to state that the control is in Sargeant's hands. He added:

"For now, the direction of travel is we know that we need to be performing at the highest level. Logan has control in his hands in making sure he's performing at that level. That's his ability to control. I haven't taken that away from him. But what's clear is we also need to be talking to others, and we are."
