His name stands for perfection, fighting spirit and passion – for many, Michael Schumacher still is the world’s best racing driver. Coming from a humble background, he made it to the top of Formula 1, which he dominated for many years – with seven world championship titles and 91 wins.
Fully supported by Michael Schumacher’s family, the Schumacher documentary 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. His strong will and triumphant fight to win against all odds put Michael Schumacher at the centre of global attention.
Michael Schumacher’s journey has captured the imagination of millions, but there is a lot more than motor racing to the success of this very private man. However, it is not only his fighting spirit and striving for perfection that define Michael Schumacher as a person; his self-doubt and insecurities complete the picture of a sensitive and reflected man.
At the heart of the Schumacher are his parents, his children and Corinna Schumacher, his childhood sweetheart, and the love of his life. They are now ready to tell his story in this exclusive documentary. Check out the trailer here.
