An official documentary on seven-time Formula 1 World Champion Michael Schumacher is set to be released later this year.
Titled SCHUMACHER, the film is being made by award-winning German filmmakers Michael Wech and Hanns-Bruno Kammertons – the pair joined forces previously for documentaries on tennis sensation Boris Becker and musician Udo Jurgens.
Rocket Science told Autosport the film will “explore the many facets of this complex man – the merciless Formula 1 driver, the ambitious boy with the dream, the down-to-earth mechanic, the dependable team player, and the devoted friend and father”.
“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,” producer Seikel told Autosport.
“We are thrilled to have the trusting co-operation of Michael Schumacher’s family and management; without their support this film would not have been possible.”
