New Schumacher documentary to be released this year

A new documentary charting the life and career of Michael Schumacher will be released later this year, with contributions from the Formula 1 legend's family included. The movie titled simply 'Schumacher' is being made by German filmmakers and will be released in December.

Formula 1 produced a Schumacher feature last year, released on its F1 TV Pro platform.

The production company involved for the new film have previously made documentaries surrounding famous Germans, including tennis icon Boris Becker.

Benjamin Seikel of production company B | 14 FILM said: "It is an important year for Michael Schumacher — with his 50th birthday in January and the 25th anniversary of his first World Championship victory in November.

"We are thrilled to have the trusting cooperation of Michael Schumacher's family and management; without their support this film would not have been possible."

Seven-time world champion Schumacher holds numerous F1 records but has disappeared from the public eye since suffering serious head injuries in a skiing accident in 2013.

Schumacher's long-time manager Sabine Kehm added: "Michael's outstanding career deserves to be celebrated 25 years after he achieved his first out of seven world championship titles. We are happy this film will be in the hands of such ambitious and sensitive professionals."
