It begins with his early days as a racing driver. A young Michael can be seen lifting a trophy, dating back to his carting days

The film though does not feature Schumi himself and does not reveal anything essential about his daily life. It does, however, cross that delicate line that the German had drawn between his sporting career and his private life, and it does so with his family’s permission.

His wife, Corina describes him as "very funny" and “wonderful”. His wife has a particular place among the speakers. She opens up without disguising her anguish or her want to be near to him.

Nicknamed Kaiser, Micheal is a seven-time F1 World Champion, who has never enjoyed the limelight that the crazy world of Formula One brings

Schumacher earned the nickname "Kaiser" and established himself as one of the greatest Formula One drivers of all time, but he also had to deal with the media attention that comes with being a seven-time world champion. Corina says that Michael fought fame because he did not want to "be a star" or "go that far”. "He disliked being surrounded by the journalists and the public.

and off of it, and how he really was in essence, a family man

A life outside of the enormous circus that F1 really is, the film speaks more about the character, Michael Schumacher, than his outbursts of misbehavior behind the wheel, so much so that "it is impossible not to change your perception of this Formula 1 legend" after watching this feature film.

This documentary now gives us an insight into what the man was like both on the track

To conclude, "Schumacher, the film" is above all a story about the driver’s remarkable career, with those sides of the Grand Prix driver, that we rarely see and that Netflix has already created a trademark with such content, throughout their three seasons of its series "Drive to survive”.
