Motor racing legend Michael Schumacher has helped a Formula 1 team take on a Hungarian All Stars XI in a charity football match in Budapest.

The 39-year-old former Formula 1 champion led his team – which also included current F1 drivers Giancarlo Fisichella and Nico Rosberg and was coached by opera legend Placido Domingo – to a 6-6 draw in front of 10,000 at the home of Hungarian club Ferencvaros. The Hungarian national team coach, Erwin Koeman, was in charge of the All Stars.

Bulgarian businessman Daniel Borimirov was in the team with Schumacher, but was less than impressed with the driver’s ability to kick a ball.

“Schumi was quite tired,” joked Borimirov. “He is crazy about motors and was driving all day on the track. I felt embarrassed because of his misses.”

Proceeds from the game will go to a Hungarian children’s hospital.
