Those who follow the blog probably know how big of an F1 fan I am. I haven’t missed a Grand Prix for the past 10 years or more and was fortunate enough to watch Michael Schumacher race live at the Italian Monza GP (not in a Ferrari though). For all Schumi fans, a documentary chronicling Michael’s F1 career is in the works and will be released Dec. 5 in Europe.
Award-winning German filmmakers Michael Wech and Hanns-Bruno Kammertöns are directing the documentary, whose trailer was shown publicly for the first time at the Cannes festival. “Schumacher” will tell the story of the star, from his boyhood days as a hobby go-karter in Kerpen near Cologne, to his legendary victories on the race track where he secured seven Formula One titles. It will also document the near-fatal skiing accident five years ago that left him with devastating head injuries from which he is still recovering.
I couldn’t find the trailer anywhere online but I can’t wait for the movie to be out. Unfortunately, there are still no news about Michael’s condition as his recovery has been handled quietly six years since the accident.
Until it’s out, check out this awesome documentary on Michael:
