Netflix will release the untold story of the seven time Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher, in his new documentary “SCHUMACHER”. The release is set for September 15 2021.
SCHUMACHER not only will cover the whole career of Michael, from his starts in karting to the time he won his seventh and last championship in 2004, but it will unveil the complex picture of Michael Schumacher as a person.
It will feature interviews with his family members, including his son Mick, his daughter Gina, his wife Corinna, and his brother Ralf. Former Ferrari boss Luca di Montezemolo, FIA chief Jean Todt, former F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone are also featured along with F1 drivers Mika Hakkinen, Sebastian Vettel, and David Coulthard.
“This film tells of both worlds. It is his family’s gift to their beloved husband and father.” -Schumacher’s long-time press officer and manager Sabine Kehm said.
“The documentary was a big challenge and needed a lot of time and sensitivity, considering the pressure that was put on the production from the outside,” SCHUMACHER Producer Benjamin Seikel mentioned.
The film has been produced by Benjamin Seikel and directed by Vanessa Nocker, and it is the only film supported by his family. There will be plenty of unreleased archive material that will show better of the Icon that Schumacher is, and will be for Formula 1.
