For those who don't know, the Nazionale Piloti is the Formula 1 drivers' football team - members of the group are current drivers and F1 drivers who have hung up their racing jerseys - which has been around for 40 years.

The Nazionale Piloti has collected 16 million euros for public benefit actions through the matches it has given over the years.

In Greece, we had the pleasure of seeing the team in question at the Karaiskakis Stadium in August 2006 at the Stadium of Atromitos in Peristeri in 2007 and also in 2022 in Mykonos, with Max Biaggi being the only two-wheeled star who attended the event.
