Michael Schumacher: Netflix drills documentaries in trailer

Michael Schumacher’s distinguished life record struggles to hold on without him. Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton came ahead of him this year with a glimpse of new victories, now the most ever. Schumacher retired from the sport as its most honored racing driver with an unrivaled number of titles eight years ago in 2013. He sustained a serious head injury, leaving doctors and his family to give fleeting updates about his health.

Former Ferrari team boss Jean Todt, now president of the FIA, has claimed that Schumacher’s wife, Corinna, helped keep him alive after his accident.

Her desire to prevent him from dying ultimately kept him from dying, according to Todt. He told Bild: “I have spent a lot of time with Corinna since Michael had her serious ski accident on December 29, 2013. She is an amazing woman and runs the family.

“She did not expect that. It happened suddenly and she had no choice. But she does it very well. I trust her, she trusts me.

“Thanks to the work of his doctors and the cooperation of Corinna, who wanted him to survive, he survived – but with consequences.

“And right now you’re fighting the consequences. We hope things get better slowly but surely.”

Where is Michael Schumacher now?

Michael Schumacher should have celebrated his 52nd birthday on January 3, 2021, but is instead incarcerated at home after being out for a disabling accident.

In December 2013, while skiing with his family, Schumacher suffered a severe brain injury when he came down the Combe de Saulire near Méribel in the French Alps with his son Mick.

As he crossed an off-piste area between Piste Chamois and Piste Mauduit, he fell and hit his head against a rock.

Despite wearing a ski helmet, he suffered catastrophic injuries. Schumacher was rushed to hospital and kept in a coma after the dramatic accident while doctors worked to rescue the race champion.

They slowly pulled him out of consciousness, which they completed a year later in 2014.

Afterwards, his family moved him home to Gland, Switzerland, where he continues his rehabilitation.

In 2014, the Telegraph reported that the racer was “paralyzed and in a wheelchair”.

Schumacher’s former Ferrari boss Todt said the racer has remained strong.

He told Radio Monte-Carlo in 2019 that he had seen an F1 race with the driver and he “keeps fighting”.

Sir. Todt said: “I am always wary of such statements, but it is true.”

“I saw the race with Michael Schumacher in his home in Switzerland.

“Michael is in the best hands and is well taken care of in his house.

“He does not give up and keeps fighting.”

Sir. Todt mentioned that their relationship is not quite the same as it once was and Schumacher’s family continues to fight with him.

He continued: “His family is struggling just as much, and of course our friendship can not be the same as it once was.

“Just because there is no longer the same communication as before.

“He keeps fighting. And his family is fighting the same way.”

Another optimistic update came from F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone, who said last month that he expected Michael to one day be able to answer questions about his health himself.

He said: “He is not with us at the moment. But when he gets better, he answers all the questions.”

While Schumacher continues on the road to recovery, only select individuals are allowed to see him.

Luca Badoer, a former Schumacher colleague at Ferrari, said only his wife chooses who is allowed to visit.

He said: “Only a few people are allowed to visit Schumacher.

“His wife Corinna decides who gets to see him.”

While Mr Schumacher is recovering, Italian Grand Prix winner Charles Leclerc has been hailed as his successor on the track.

FIA President Todt and Formula 1 motorsport director Ross Brawn compared the Monegasque driver to the healthy racing hero.

Sir. Leclerc said: “It’s always very nice to hear that kind of thing. But I’m only 21, I have not proved anything in relation to what Michael has.

“So for now, it’s way too far to talk about these things, I’m working on my career and trying to have the best possible career on my side.

“But of course to compare with this one, with these people it’s always an honor, but it seems very far to me.”

In her first interview since Mr Schumacher’s injury, Michael’s wife thanked the Corinna F1 legend for “doing everything”.

She said: “When I was 30, I really wanted a horse, and Michael took me to Dubai, where I intended to buy an Arabian horse.

“He did everything for me. I will never forget who to thank.

“That would be my husband Michael.”

According to Michael Schumacher’s former manager Willi Weber, Corinna has declined requests for a visit.

Speaking on an RTL special in memory of his maiden victory 25 years ago, he said: “I know Michael has been badly injured, but unfortunately not what progress he is making with rehabilitation.

“I want to know how he feels and shake hands or stroke his face. But unfortunately it is being rejected by Corinna.

“She probably fears that I will immediately recognize what is going on and publish the truth.”

Corinna Schumacher continues to make most of the decisions for her family and has the final say with Michael Schumacher’s father Rolf and their children Gina and Mick over footage used in an upcoming film about them.

According to the production company B / 14, the development of the upcoming film – which was to premiere next month – has now been postponed due to the “extensive material” included in the production.

A B / 14 spokesman told Bild: “The directors and producers want to give themselves more time to complete the film because of the very extensive material.

“The new release date will be announced in due course.”
