After a long wait, the documentary about the life of Michael Schumacher, one of the greatest and most victorious drivers in Formula 1, is available on Netflix, a subscription streaming service platform. The film features interviews, images and videos of the pilot’s career and unprecedented curiosities that promise to shine the eyes of those passionate about the sport.
What does the documentary about Schumacher available on Netflix say?
Seven times Formula 1 world champion, Michael Schumacher made the sport’s history both for his performance on the tracks and for his brilliant career. However, an accident in 2013 while skiing turned his and his family’s life upside down, making a gigantic mystery about the rider’s health status.
To unravel the mystery and show fans a little bit about what happens, Netflix chose to make a documentary about the German’s life before and after the accident.
According to the Formula 1 official website, Corinna’s wife cites in the documentary several curiosities about the driver’s personal life. In one of the chapters, she talks about how her husband was passionate about parties and karaoke, especially as he was “the first to arrive and the last to leave”, while in an interview he also mentions the pilot’s mania for throwing his friends in the pool, with videos intimates of family life displayed.
Jean Todt, former Ferrari boss and current FIA president, also appears in the film in an interview talking about the brand’s choice to recruit Schumacher to represent the team on the track. According to Todt, between 1996 and 1998, Schumacher’s first three seasons at Ferrari, the cast began to question whether they had made the right choice. Later, between 2000 and 2004, the team understood success.
The film also reveals the German’s passion for driving in the rain, as he and his brother Ralf always played on the go-kart track alongside their father as children. Ayrton Senna’s death is also mentioned in the documentary where, in an interview, Schumacher admits to having suffered from insomnia after the accident.
However, a revelation was made by Corinna, Schumacher’s wife, indicating that on the date of the accident, the German almost opted for skydiving, which could have completely changed and given another fate, who knows, to the German. Today, he remains in the family’s house with complete privacy, the woman assured him. In addition, he receives all the necessary medical care and lives in family moments every day. Sons Mick, a Haas pilot, and Gina-Maria also give testimonies about what life with their father is like.
