Despite having been such a public figure during his time as one of (if not the) greatest Formula One driver of all time, news surrounding Michael Schumacher’s health is very closely guarded.
Every so often, we get details from somebody who claims to have inside knowledge, but his family have made a concerted effort to keep the matter private.
We will hear from them in the new Netflix doccie, SCHUMACHER, which is the first and only film supported by his family.
The timing of the film’s release next month coincides with Schumacher’s entry into Formula One 30 years ago.
Schumacher features interviews with the German driver’s family, including his wife, father and brother, as well as various prominent figures of the motorsport such as Jean Todt, Bernie Ecclestone, Sebastian Vettel, Mika Häkkinen, Damon Hill, Flavio Briatore and David Coulthard. The filmmakers also had access to never-before-seen archive material.
Seven world championships, 91 race victories, and fans around the world.
Exactly how much is revealed about Schumacher’s health following the 2013 skiing accident that left him with a severe brain injury remains to be seen.
Part of the appeal of the doccie is that it promises to show us a different side of the German driver, who battled hard to overcome periods of self-doubt and insecurity on his way to motorsport greatness.
The release date is September 15 – mark that down.
