Netflix to release new documentary about Michael Schumacher

On September 15, a new documentary about Michael Schumacher will be released on Netflix. The documentary is fully supported by the family of the seven-time world champion.

The film will feature contributions from wife Corinna and brother Ralf Schumacher as well as children Gina and Mick Schumacher. F1 personalities who have played a role in Schumacher's career will also appear in the film, think of Jean Todt, Bernie Ecclestone, Sebastian Vettel, Damon Hill and more.

“In order to preserve his private sphere as a source of strength, he has always rigorously and consistently separated his private from his public life. This film tells of both worlds. It is his family's gift to their beloved husband and father", said Sabine Kehm, Schumacher's manager on Motorsport.com.

Showing Schumacher as he was

“The greatest challenge for the directors was certainly to find the balance between independent reporting and consideration for the family", said director Vanessa Nöcker. “Corinna Schumacher herself was our greatest support in this."

“She herself wanted to make an authentic film, to show Michael as he is, with all his ups and downs, without any sugarcoating. She was great and brave enough to let us do what we wanted, and so we respected and kept her boundaries." In a month and a half, the film will be available on Netflix to watch.
