Berlin, Sep. 8 (BNA): Michael Schumacher's unique racing career is at the centre of new Netflix documentary, reports dpa international


The film is also a present from his family to the former F1 star, whose wife speaks about the period following his skiing accident for the first time.


Corinna Schumacher cannot hold back the tears. The memory of the fateful day, almost eight years ago, when Michael Schumacher had a major skiing accident, moves the wife of the record Formula One champion deeply.


In the Netflix documentary 'Schumacher', which will be available from September 15, she provides insights into the family's life after the tragedy in the French Alps on December 29, 2013 for the first time.


From the beginning in carting to the rise to becoming a seven-time world champion and with darker moments of the over-ambitious Schumacher included, the documentary provides pictures long-term fans will know but will be happy to see again.


And there is insight from former F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone, team chiefs Flavio Briatore, Jean Todt and Ross Brawn, and rivals like Mika Hakkinen.


Other than a broken leg from a 1999 crash at Silverstone, Schumacher emerged from his career unscathed.
