Although the team have refused to comment either way throughout the season, it does now seem a matter of time before Williams confirm Sargeant's seat for next year.
Vowles: Sargeant contract decision imminent
And despite that perhaps being down to a lack of options available to him, Vowles has revealed that he wants to analyse the data one more time before rubber stamping a decision either way.
"Shortly, within weeks of where we are now," Vowles told the media. "Fundamentally, I wanted to make sure I saw the end of the season and assess all the options.
"I'm someone that was very clear from the beginning. I want to assess this across the season, not across one race, to make sure we make the right decision for this team and for the future of Logan as well.
"I just want to check through a full season of data one more time and look at the progress, look at mistakes, look the outliers, look for growth and just make sure we're on the right track."
