With the blessing of his family, a documentary about Formula 1 champion Michael Schumacher's racing career is set to open at the end of this year.
As reported by Motorsport Magazine, the film will showcase Schumacher's Formula 1 journey starting from Jordan, Benetton, Ferrari to Mercedes-Benz. It has been 25 years since the legend claimed the first of his seven Formula 1 championship title.
Fans will be thrilled to hear that the documentary could include the footage of the racing driver at home with his family since his near-fatal ski accident in late 2013. It could also feature footage from his recent 50th birthday celebrations in Mallorca and will include interviews from wife Corinna and father Rolf along with children Gina-Maria and Mick.
Produced by German production company B 14 Film, a trailer of the documentary film is expected to be shown during this month’s Cannes Film Festival.
“Michael’s outstanding career deserves to be celebrated 25 years after he achieved his first of seven world championship titles,” Schumacher family spokesperson Sabine Kehm said. “We are happy this film will be in the hands of such ambitious and sensitive professionals.”
