Michael Schumacher will be the subject of a landmark five-part documentary to be released later this year. The seven-time F1 world champion has completely withdrawn from the public eye since suffering life-changing injuries in a skiing accident back in 2013.
Schumacher is considered by many to be the greatest F1 driver of all time. The German won two Drivers’ Championships with Benetton in the 1990s and added five more to his tally – won in consecutive seasons – with Ferrari between 2000 and 2004.
The 91-time Grand Prix winner took a four-year absence from the sport, but returned for three more seasons with Mercedes during the twilight of his career. Just a year after his retirement, Schumacher hit his head on a rock while skiing with his family, and despite wearing a helmet, the injuries put him into a medically induced coma.
Schumacher was later released from hospital to continue his recovery at home in Lake Geneva, where specialists and his wife Corinna continue to care for him to this day.

Little is known about the specifics of Schumacher’s condition, although his son Mick – a former F1 driver himself – has revealed that he is unable to speak.
Ten years on from the accident, the German broadcaster ARD plans to broadcast a five-part documentary on Schumacher’s life, with the first episode penciled in for December 28 this year.
It is not yet clear what the documentary will contain, but it could give fans a fresh insight into Schumacher’s health since he was last seen in public. The brother of the F1 legend, Ralf, addressed the situation of the former Ferrari ace during a recent interview Bunte.
“When I see my children Gina-Maria and Mick, my heart smiles,” he said. “If someone in the family is looking for my advice, I’m there. They go their own way. Unfortunately, sometimes life is not fair. We have to accept it.”
Only Lewis Hamilton has won more Grands Prix than Schumacher, and both have the best place when it comes to the Drivers’ Championship. Schumacher’s last win was at the Chinese Grand Prix in 2012.
Mick, 24, continued the legacy with a two-season spell at Haas, although he was unable to secure a seat for this season and took on the role of Mercedes reserve driver, where he remains to this day.
