On the 30th anniversary of Michael Schumacher's first appearance in the Formula 1 race, the American production company Netflix has released the official trailer for the documentary, which will be released on September 15.
The documentary with the simple title ‘Schumacher’, described by manager Sabine Kehm as a ‘gift from his family to a beloved husband and father’, will offer a unique insight into the life of one of the best racers of all time.
In the film, his father, wife Corinna and children Gina and Mick will talk about him in very personal interviews, and unofficially it is also said to contain the first photos from the accident at the end of 2013, in which Schumacher suffered severe head injuries.
In addition to family members, Schumi’s life story on the journey “from the Kerpen gravel pit to the world superstar” will be presented by former Ferrari boss Jean Todt, former F1 first man Bernie Ecclestone, former Willi Weber manager, former Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo and many other racing dignitaries. marked his career.
Schumacher has been hidden from the public eye since his fall while skiing in Merbel almost eight years ago, and no details are known about his health.
Bits of information have been made public by Todt in recent years, but it is impossible to draw concrete conclusions from his words. Fans hope to get a clearer picture with the documentary, for which Corinna allowed the creators to enter the family villa on Lake Geneva.
The documentary should have seen the light of day as early as December 2019, but due to external pressures and the great desire of producers to ensure adequate sensibility, the production was delayed for more than a year and a half.
