Don't worry Manchester City fans - Sergio Aguero isn't about to trade life on the pitch for one in the fast lane.
The Argentine striker did take time out from the title race though to spend a day racing around the track with Formula 1 star Nico Rosberg. However, thoughts of City's title defence are never far away, and as the league's only unbeaten side, the 24-year-old sees no reason why they can't repeat that success.
SOUNDBITE (Spanish) SERGIO AGUERO Manchester City "It has just started. It is clear that it will be difficult because last year we got an advantage, well, United and us, over Chelsea. And then it was a steadfast fight with them. Now, Chelsea have come to the fore and it will be more challenging this year, but also good. We hope to repeat it again."
Despite being an ever present this season, remaining in the City side is a challenge as tough as any F1 race course. With Mario Balotelli, Edin Dzeko and Carlos Tevez all battling for a starting place - Aguero knows he can ill afford to miss a gear.
SOUNDBITE (Spanish) SERGIO AGUERO Manchester City "There is a good quality in the team, it is difficult for the manager to choose just 11 players because the reserves are really good. We are working everyday, we are training just to give our best in a match. I am always trying to be in the starting 11."
It's not just his manager who appears to have confidence in Aguero though. For a second year, he's been named on the 23-man shortlist for the Ballon D'or.
SOUNDBITE (Spanish) SERGIO AGUERO Manchester City "To, again, be on the list of the 23 nominees, to be honest, it gives me immense happiness. Although there are thousands of players, who are really successful all over the world. Obviously, to be amongst those 23 players is nice. It is difficult but just being there, alongside them, I'm happy."
City fans will be hoping Aguero is all revved up for the rest of the Premier League season - beginning with a crunch tie against Chelsea on Sunday.
