The Argentine striker left the Etihad on a free transfer to join Barcelona last year but has since retired due to a heart issue, giving him more time to take in sporting action across the globe.
That would have left his schedule clear for what is set to be a dramatic day in the Premier League, where Manchester City have just a one-point advantage over Liverpool in the battle for the title.
City have won the title in four of the last five seasons and are looking to bring a halt to Liverpool’s plans of an unprecedented quadruple, with victory in the Carabao Cup and FA Cup already secured and a Champions League final against Real Madrid in Paris next weekend.
However, it appeared Aguero’s priority wasn’t to cheer his former employers on in their last match of the season as he was instead taking in the action of the latest round of Formula One action in Barcelona.
That led to OddsBible declaring on Twitter that Aguero was ‘clearly more interested in this race than the title race’, with it unlikely that he would have been able to finish his endeavours at the track to make it in front of the TV for kick-off.
While fans have the comfort of being able to easily switch over come kick-off at 4pm following the conclusion of the Grand Prix, Aguero doesn’t quite have the same option.
He did have plenty of drama to take in during the opening few laps of the race however, with Lewis Hamilton suffering a first-lap puncture after a collision with Kevin Magnusson, while both Carlos Sainz and Max Verstappen spun at turn four.
Verstappen’s woes were culminated by the fact he was suffering intermittent DRS issues that left him unable to overtake Mercedes driver George Russell, who benefitted from his earlier spin to take second spot in the race.
Verstappen came back to record a race win that moved him saw him leapfrog Charles Leclerc, who had to retire, at the top of the drivers’ standings.
