How many of you are fans of sports? Perhaps a majority of you are. I am too. In fact, watching and playing sports is one of my favorite things to do when I have the time for it. And I’m also a fan of cars. Just like most guys, the way they go around the track taking each other over and making noise just makes me feel fulfilled. And I guess the same is the case for many of you. If so, then you have probably heard of the legendary Formula 1 driver Michael Schumacher. In fact, even if you aren’t a fan of motorsports, you have probably heard of him. He is a household name and fans of the motorsport industry just love him and adore him. And today we are going to talk about the documentary, Schumacher, that talks about him and lets us in on Michael Schumacher’s life.
Schumacher is the documentary that most fans of the sport had been waiting for. It was something that was highly demanded in the previous years following Michael Schumacher’s retirement from Motorsport. He left a legacy behind him that not many could stand up to or even come close to. So, a documentary on the legend was well warranted. And now it seems that Netflix has decided to grant the fans their wish, after a long wait, finally. And I am personally really excited about it. It is going to be a new entry into the motorsport niche for a lot of the younger audience that tends to stream Netflix as their primary activity. And with that, it is going to bring young blood to the sport of fast cars, and thundering engines.
If you don’t know much about Michael Schumacher, he is a very renowned German Formula One former racing driver who made his own legacy by winning not one, not two, not three, but SEVEN World Drivers’ Championship Trophies. Schumacher became a racing legend by the end of his career and left behind his mark on the world. So it is of no concern whether you are even a fan of the sport or not, you have probably heard of his name regardless.
Michael Schumacher retired from Motorsport back in 2012, so it has been quite a while since we last saw him on the track. And his fans have been waiting for 9 long years just for a documentary. And they’ve been getting antsy about it. So Netflix has big boots to fill this time. And it needs to be up to the task.
Without much further ado, let us talk all about the upcoming Netflix documentary Schumacher and all that the release entails for us. We are also going to talk about the release date for the documentary, so stick around to the end if you are interested in that.
If you’re a fan of documentaries, then I have something for you. I’m also personally very invested in documentaries.

Didn’t expect it? Thought so. Now, what are you waiting for? Check out the article now!
When we talk about documentaries, there is not much to reveal to the readers for fear of revealing too much and potentially giving spoilers. And Schumacher’s life is no secret for those who really admired him and followed him throughout his career. So without revealing much about the documentary, let us get right to the synopsis.
The IMDb synopsis for Schumacher states, “Documentary on the life of seven time Formula 1 world champion driver Michael Schumacher.” Very descriptive, it must be said.
What we do know is that Schumacher is not just going to be an entry point for those unaware about the life of Michael Schumacher, but rather it is going to have stuff that even us fans don’t know about. It is going to feature unseen footage from Schumacher and much more interesting trivia, from the start to the end of his career. That is enough incentive to watch the documentary as soon as possible.

It is yet another addition to the Untold franchise with a riveting story behind it. You are going to love it, and I’m quite sure of that. So do check it out.
