Drivers Suffering in Brutal Qatar Conditions: Sargeant and Albon Endure Medical Assessments
The demanding track conditions at the Qatar Grand Prix took a significant toll on drivers, with two of them from the Williams team, Logan Sargeant and Alex Albon, facing severe health challenges during the race.
Logan Sargeant, in particular, had a harrowing experience as he was forced to the point of retirement due to intense dehydration. He had battled through illness earlier in the week, and the gruelling conditions of the race weekend exacerbated his condition. Sargeant even received an offer to retire the car but chose to continue before eventually returning to the Williams garage. After slowly exiting the cockpit, he was assessed and cleared by the medical team on-site.
