Michael Schumacher remains a titan in the Formula 1 world, having been crowned seven times world champion.
However, the legendary German pilot has been absent from the public eye for nearly a decade after sustaining a brain injury in a skiing accident.
Netflix is now set to lift the veil on Schumacher’s recovery in a new documentary that also celebrates his iconic F1 career.
But when will it be available to watch and who else should be involved? talkSPORT.com takes a look …
When is Schumacher released?
The F1 legend’s documentary is slated for release on Netflix on Wednesday, September 15.
Schumacher was originally slated for a December 2019 release date, but has been pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The film is one hour and 52 minutes long and Netflix describes it as “inspiring, exciting and enjoyable.”
Schumacher will feature close family members including his son Mick and daughter Gina-Maria, as well as the current F1 driver, fellow German and former Ferrari star Sebastian Vettel.
Michael Schumacher: Profile
The 52-year-old is a motorsport legend who dominated the F1 track between 1991 and 2006, before coming out of retirement between 2010 and 2012.
The Ferrari icon has established himself as one of the greatest of all time with seven world championships – a record now shared with Briton Lewis Hamilton.
After his retirement from F1, tragedy struck in December 2013 when Schumacher suffered serious head injuries in a skiing accident.
There have been few updates on his health in the past eight years since he began his recovery at home in September 2014.
What was said?
“Michael is there. Different, but he’s there, and that gives us strength, I find,” said Schumacher’s wife Corinna.
“He still shows me how strong he is every day.
“We live together at home. We do therapy. We do everything we can to improve Michael and make sure he’s comfortable. And just make him feel our family, our bond.
“And whatever happens, I’ll do whatever I can. We all will. We try to carry on as a family, like Michael loved and still does. And we carry on with our lives.
“’The private is private’, as he always said. It is very important to me that he can continue to make the most of his privacy.
“Michael has always protected us, and now we are protecting Michael.”
