Sergio Aguero joins F1’s stars for latest Esports race
Four-time Premier league winner Sergio Aguero will become the latest sporting star to take on some of Formula 1’s leading drivers in Sunday evening’s Virtual Spanish Grand Prix.
Aguero, Manchester City’s all-time top scorer, is racing for Red Bull alongside the victor of last week’s F1 Esports event.
Albon edged a race-long battle with Charles Leclerc around the simulated version of Interlagos last Sunday to end his Ferrari rival’s run of two consecutive victories in the Virtual GP series.
Leclerc is also back on Sunday with the young Ferrari and Red Bull pair joined by the usual sim-racing contingent from the current F1 grid – George Russell, Lando Norris, Nicholas Latifi and Antonio Giovinazzi.
Sky F1’s Anthony Davidson, meanwhile, returns fresh from a victory in the All-Star Series sim events last weekend and competes for Mercedes for the first time. Davidson remains a simulator driver for the six-time F1 champions.
And the name Hamilton returns to McLaren, as Lewis’ brother Nicholas teams up with Norris for the Woking team.
