Williams: F1 2023 Season Review

The 2023 season for Williams can be put down as a major step forward for the team after rising to 7th in the Constructor Standings.

But what were the highlights for the team, let take a look


Nicholas Latifi was replaced by rookie Logan Sargeant going into the 2023 season, with Alex Albon staying with the team for another season.

The start of the year also saw James Vowels, then Mercedes Strategy Director, appointed Team Principal. 


The team scored a total of eight points during the 2022 season, finishing 10th in the Constructor Standings, but in 2023 they would finish 7th on 28 points.

The Bahrain Grand Prix season opener would see the team score their first point this season, with Albon taking 10th, while Sargeant finished 12th on debut. 

Williams would have to wait until Canada to score again, Albon taking a 7th place finish and would then finish 8th at the British Grand Prix a few races later. 

An 8th place finish in The Netherlands followed by a 7th place finish in Italy showed that Albon was getting the most out of his car, mainly exceeding the expectations by many given the difficult few seasons Williams has had. 

Then at the United States Grand Prix, Logan Sargeant scored his first Formula One point with a 10th place finish, while Albon finished in 9th to give the team their first double points finish since the 2021 Belgian Grand Prix, which didn’t see a lap of green flag racing take place and George Russell on the podium for the team. 


It hasn’t been the easiest few years for the Williams team, but with Alex Albon taking on a more experienced Grand Prix driver role, using his time at Red Bull and two podium finishes to his advantage, it’s helping take the team in the right direction. 


James Vowels also has brought a fresh mindset to the team, giving patience to the likes of Logan Sargeant who hasn’t quite performed to the levels expected throughout the season. 

Overall, there is a much better environment around Williams and their next target is to try and close the gap between themselves and Alpine.
