Williams: Giovinazzi checks behind the sergeant

The Italian driver is vying on paper for a place in Formula 1 with three teams: Haas, Williams and Alpine. Antonio, in fact, plays chances in two teams: with Haas he will return to the leadership in Austin thanks to the support of Ferrari, while for a look at Grove’s team, he will have to wait until November, when it is known whether Logan will be Sargent’s super license in F2 . FIA. Meanwhile, Apulian has also found financial coverage to help Capito complete the 2023 budget.

Nick de Vries has had time to show what he can be worth. He gave Williams two points on his Formula One debut, and now his Circus listing has skyrocketed.

Helmut Marko meets him in Graz to offer him a seat AlphaTauri alongside Yuki Tsunoda and a free-rider Pierre Gasly who can thus descend into the Alps to give life to a brilliant blue of riders with Esteban Ocon, in order to “clean up” at least in part the wacky loss of Oscar Piastre in Summer, as the Australian married at McLaren.

If these pieces are put in place, there will still be two teams to be selected in the 2023 squad: Williams and Haas. Just Capito at the top of his list put American Logan Sargent, the third driver for the team, who is currently third in the Formula 2 Championship with Team Carlin.

The American is the lead candidate to replace Nicholas Latifi who hasn’t found the speed to lead the single-seater with ground effect and anyone who lands in Williams will have to ensure adequate economic coverage for Grove’s team, given Latifi’s father will be parading. Don the son in the grill.

Sargent’s problem is his F1 Super license: Logan, on the eve of the final race in Abu Dhabi, is ready to go to receive his FIA ticket, but he will have to avoid all the dangers of Yas Marina, because he is third with 135 points, but he is far from sure of the position because a swarm of opponents is still He can undercut: Jack Doohan, Jehan Daruvala and Enzo Fittipaldi have 126 points, while Liam Lawson has 117 points, with Frederic Feiste trailing with 114 points. And Jorge Phipps 110.

Thus, the scenario is somewhat specific, but not defined. Awaiting the finale in F2, Sargeant will be smelling F1, racing Williams’ FP1 in the US GP at Austin’s home race.

So, Just Capito will have to wait until November to find out for sure who will be the driver who will join Alexander Albon at Williams and not be in a hurry. It is interesting to note that Antonio Giovinazzi is waiting. Apulian expects to return to the lap in Formula 1 after a season in FE that wasn’t great because he ended up on an unsuitable team.

Ferrari asked Haas to give Antonio a ‘vision’ for two GPs: at Monza he shone very well in FP1 of the Italian Grand Prix compared to the assured Kevin Magnussen and will be back on the track in Austin for a Danish VF-22. So, in the US, we’ll see a kind of long-distance derby between Antonio and Sargent.

Giovinazzi is also in Gunther Steiner’s notebook for Haas’ second wheel, since Mick Schumacher is already a foreign element for the American team: Team Manager Bolzano has to deal with Gene Haas, the owner who is curiously looking at Nico Hulkenberg as an alternative to the Italian.

Antonio has a Ferrari contract, but Cavallino’s team doesn’t seem to have the ability to force a driver on Haas second, so Enrico Zanarini, the Italian’s manager, looks around: The tricolor driver was chosen by Alpine for the test (penalty shootout) in Hungary, but the focus is on Haas and Williams.

And to get the Grove Land, it would be necessary to bring the “pony”: Giovinazzi would also be on hand with financial coverage to ensure that Capito had the budget to move forward with a certain degree of calm. Antonio doesn’t have his fate in his hands, but he has a good chance of rebuilding a chance in F1…
