His name stands for perfection, fighting spirit, and passion – Michael Schumacher is still widely considered to be the best racing driver of all time. He went from humble beginnings to the top of Formula 1 and dominated it for many years – with seven world championship titles and a total of 91 victories. The documentary SCHUMACHER traces his path from the Kerpen gravel pit to global superstar. 

Fully supported by Michael Schumacher’s family, SCHUMACHER features rare interviews and previously undisclosed archival footage and draws a very sensitive yet critical portrait of the seven-time World Champion. The documentary explores the many facets that made and define this complex athlete and accompanies him on his meteoric rise in this challenging and dangerous sport, which is followed by millions worldwide.  

The long-awaited documentary, which can be seen exclusively on Netflix from September 15, does not only portray his incomparable career, though. Thanks to rare interviews, never-before-seen archive material, and the support of his family, the many facets of his multi-layered personality are shown.

In addition to his father and his brother Ralf, Schumacher’s wife Corinna and his two children Gina and Mick, a Formula 1 driver himself, speak openly for the first time, as do his closest peers and competitors. Among them are Jean Todt, Bernie Ecclestone, Sebastian Vettel, Mika Häkkinen, Damon Hill, Flavio Briatore, David Coulthard, Willi Weber, Luca di Montezemolo, Piero Ferrari, his manager Sabine Kehm, and many more. They tell the story of a passionate fighter who pushed the boundaries of his sport further and further, and of the absolute team player who always treated people with high regard and respect.

The timing of the release commemorates Schumacher’s entry into Formula 1 which he accomplished, almost to the day, 30 years ago. This is definitely one to watch.
