F2: Logan Sargeant seals maiden series pole at Silverstone
Logan Sargeant secured his maiden Formula 2 pole position, dominating qualifying at Silverstone for Carlin. The American driver ended up over a tenth of a second clear of Mercedes junior Frederik Vesti, with F2 Championship leader Felipe Drugovich rounding out the top three.
Sargeant picked up from where he’d left off in Practice as the fastest driver on track, never losing the top spot for long throughout the Qualifying session as others fought to match him. With just over five minutes remaining of the session, Sargeant posted a 1m 38.432s which was good enough to close out the top spot and leave the rest trailing.
Drugovich’s P3 effort was matched by title rival Theo Pourchaire, who set an identical time to the Brazilian only after the MP Motorsport driver had recorded his lap. It left the ART Grand Prix driver fourth on the grid, ahead of Liam Lawson who rounded out the top five.

Alpine Academy driver Jack Doohan ended the session sixth on the grid for Virtuosi Racing. Jehan Daruvala had opted to run in the gap while the majority of drivers waited in the pits and will start Saturday’s Sprint Race from reverse grid pole.
Enzo Fittipaldi will line up alongside him on the front row of the grid for Charouz Racing System after his second-best Qualifying result of the season.
The Formula 2 Sprint Race begins at 1700 local time on Saturday following the Formula 1 Qualifying session for the British Grand Prix.
