In December 2013, the German Michael sSchumacher, a seven-time Formula 1 champion, suffered a serious accident while skiing at the Méribel station in the French Alps. Seven years after being completely secretive about his state of health, it is known that details about his life will finally be revealed after that accident.

Michael was descending a hillside when he collided with a stone, fell and the blow caused him to suffer extensive brain damage that kept him in hospital for eight months. Since then, his family not only takes care of his health, but also protects his privacy to prevent him from knowing any information.

After years of secrecy, daily The country de España reports that a documentary about the pilot is about to be released with images provided by the family and even with interviews with some of its members. Already in May 2019 there was talk about it, but now it has come to light again because the material it will collect is already known and because of its multiple delays when it comes to its premiere, mainly due to covid-19.

Simply titled Schumacher, the documentary was made by three German directors, Michael Wech, Hanns-Bruno Kammertons, and Vanessa Nöcker. For the first time will contain “private and family approved” recordings, as the German newspaper Express has advanced, which has provided several details in this regard. For example, he explains that in the footage there will be testimonies from the former pilot’s wife, Corinna (51 years old), as well as his father, Rolf (75) and his children, Gina-Maria (23) and the well-known pilot and follower from the Mick saga (21).

Vanessa Nocker, who in addition to making the documentary is the general director and producer of the company that is creating the documentary, B14, based in the city of Hamburg, has explained to the German newspaper that the film is finally finished. Its premiere was scheduled for the beginning of December 2019, but they decided to postpone it for a year, until the end of 2020, precisely to be able to have access to the family videos contributed by the Schumachers and thus incorporate them into it. “The coronavirus has complicated the situation a lot. So we cannot give a (release) date at the moment, we ask for a little patience, “Nocher told the Express.

Michael and his wife Corina used to enjoy activities in the snow.

Family spokeswoman Sabine Kehm told the same newspaper that “the film is supposed to portray Michael’s incomparable career, but it also shows the many facets of a complex man: the ruthless and daring Formula 1 driver, the ambitious athlete, consummate mechanic with unique technical talent, team player to trust, and loving family man. ”

After coming out of a coma in mid-2014, Michael Schumacher was transferred to his home in Gland, Switzerland, next to Lake Geneva, between Lausanne and Geneva. There a series of specialists attend him every day. However, two and a half years ago the family bought a mansion in Mallorca that had belonged to businessman Florentino Pérez, president of Real Madrid. Built on an area of ​​15,000 square meters, the house has sea views, two swimming pools and is surrounded by gardens, and it is estimated that it cost about 30 million euros. The latest news, at the end of September 2020, suggested that it is in that place where the pilot is now recovering.

The former wife of Formula 1 mogul Flavio Briattore, model Elisabetta Gregoraci, gave some details in Grande Fratello VIP, the Italian version with famous Big Brother: “He does not speak, he communicates with his eyes. Only three people can visit it and I know who they are ”. (D)
