On September 15, 2021, 30 years after Schumacher's debut in Formula One, the film will be released on Netflix.
Thousands of people followed him from all around the world. Michael Schumacher has become the focus of global attention due to his strong will and triumphant struggle to win despite all odds. Michael Schumacher's journey has captivated millions of people. Still, there is a lot more than motor racing to the success of this very private man. On the other hand, Michael Schumacher's battling spirit and desire for perfection identify him as a person; his self-doubt and insecurities round out the picture of a sensitive and reflective guy. Michael's biography revolves around his parents, children, and Corinna Schumacher, his childhood sweetheart and life partner. They're all set to tell his narrative now.
The film was produced with Schumacher's family using private family archives, Formula One archive footage, and interviews.
Interviews with Schumacher's wife Corinna, father Rolf, brother Ralf, and children Gina-Maria and Mick, as well as crucial Formula One figures like as Jean Todt, Bernie Ecclestone, Sebastian Vettel, Mika Häkkinen, Damon Hill, David Coulthard, and Flavio Briator, are included in the film.
