“Unveil the complex picture of Michael Schumacher as a person” – Netflix has announced to the air the special documentary on the 7-time world champion later in September this year.
The Netflix documentary will give viewers a never-seen-before insight into the champion as a person. It will contain conversations with son Mick, daughter Gina, wife Corinna, and brother Ralf.
Apart from them, fellow drivers Sebastian Vettel and David Coulthard are also expected to make an appearance, and so is ex-F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone.

The German’s manager, Sabine Kehm, spoke about the documentary and how much it means to his family. It is a gift by them to the great man, who is currently in a coma after a ski incident a few years ago. Little is known about his current situation, with the family striving to keep matters private.
“Michael Schumacher has redefined the professional image of a racing driver and has set new standards. In his quest for perfection, he spared neither himself nor his team, driving them to the greatest successes. He is admired all over the world for his leadership qualities.
“He found the strength for this task and the balance to recharge at home, with his family, whom he loves idolatrously. 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.”
