Seven-time world champion Schumacher had his life examined in Netflix’s eponymous new documentary, which released earlier this month. “Schumacher” explores his incredible career, which saw him become, in the opinion of many, the greatest runner of all time, as well as a rivalry with Ayrton Senna. It also offers viewers a first glimpse into his family life, those closest to Schumacher detailing the aftermath of his skiing accident in 2013.

The 52-year-old is still recovering from the accident.

During the incident, he suffered a serious brain injury while skiing in the Swiss Alps.

In the documentary, his son Mick also explained how his father struggled to speak.

Mick, now a Formula 1 racer with Haas, admitted he would “give up everything” to talk to his father again.

And friend Fisichella also once revealed how he wanted to talk to Schumacher too – to tell him what a great pilot Mick had become.

Fisichella, a former F1 driver, spoke about how much impact his friend and former rival’s health had on him during the touching interview.

He noted that “nothing is known” about the condition of the racing driver because the family “does not let us know anything about him”.

Schumacher was notoriously private after retiring from Formula 1, and often said that the publicity that accompanied his status was not something he appreciated.

The new documentary is therefore all the more insightful as it is the first time that the family has opened the doors to the world.

Former Ferrari boss Jean Todt has claimed he is still fighting after visiting the family home in 2020.

He explained that he had “an amazing woman next to him”, as well as his children, nurses and other health professionals.

He added: “All I can do is be close to them until I am able to do something, and then I will.”

Among those who paid tribute to Schumacher during the documentary was current F1 racer Sebastian Vettel, who noted how much influence his German compatriot had on him.

Vettel said: “He’s been my idol ever since I started driving karts. He’s had a big influence.

“Racing driver Michael Schumacher is my hero, my motivation to win races.

“Sport fascinates me and I know other racing drivers but there was no one like him.”

Schumacher’s accident saw him undergo two “surgeries” before being placed in a six-month artificial coma.

The accident occurred while skiing on unsecured terrain, where he fell and hit his head against a rock.

He spent 254 days in the hospital before returning to his family home in Geneva, Switzerland.

The German has stayed there ever since.
