Netflix unveiled it through their very own app, in the list of soon-to-be-released movies and series. As announced earlier this year, Netflix will be releasing the movie on September 15, 2021.

Interestingly, Netflix constantly had the support of the entire Schumacher family along with several other entities around the F1 paddock.

Michael’s brother, Ralf Schumacher, Luca di Montezemolo (former Ferrari’s boss), Jean Todt (FIA chief), Bernie Ecclestone will be starring in the film.

Along with the four, several other racing drivers including Sebastian Vettel, Mika Hakkinen, and David Coulthard, will also be sharing the screen with the protagonist.

This could prove to be quite sentimental for a lot of F1 fans, as the 7-time world champion was once and still remains one of the greatest drivers to exist in the history of Formula 1.

Michael Schumacher redefined the image of a racing driver: Sabine

Schumacher’s manager, Sabine Kehm, opened up that the Netflix documentary would reveal the two lives of Michael – the private life and the racing life.

Michael Schumacher has redefined the professional image of a racing driver and has set new standards. In his quest for perfection, he spared neither himself nor his team, driving them to the greatest successes. He is admired all over the world for his leadership qualities,” she said.

He found the strength for this task and the balance to recharge at home, with his family, whom he loves idolatrously. In order to preserve his private sphere as a source of strength, he has always rigorously and consistently separated his private from his public life.
