Michael Schumacher Documentary To Premiere Later This Year

A documentary about F1 legend Michael Schumacher is set to be released at the end of the year with the blessing of the racing driver’s family.

Motorsport Magazine reports that the film will be primarily focused on the racing years of the German, including his stints in Jordan, Benetton, Ferrari and Mercedes. The release of the documentary will come 25 years after Schumacher claimed his first F1 championship title in 1994 (with Benetton), the first of seven he clinched during his stellar career in the world’s top motorsport series.

German media claims that the documentary could include the first footage of Schumacher at home with his family since his near-fatal ski accident in late 2013. In fact, it is asserted that it may even incorporate footage from his recent 50th birthday celebrations in Mallorca and will include interviews from wife Corinna and father Rolf along with children Gina-Maria and Mick.

The film’s current working title is “Schumacher” and is being put together by German production company B 14 Film. A trailer is expected to be shown during this month’s Cannes Film Festival.

“Michael’s outstanding career deserves to be celebrated 25 years after he achieved his first of seven world championship titles,” Schumacher family spokesperson Sabine Kehm said. “We are happy this film will be in the hands of such ambitious and sensitive professionals.”

The exact medical condition of Schumacher has been a closely guarded secret since he was placed in an induced coma for three months in 2013 after falling and hitting his head while skiing off-piste. His son, Mick Schumacher, completed his first Formula 1 test back in April behind the wheel of the current Ferrari SF90.
