An official documentary is being made about Michael Schumacher

An official documentary is being made about Michael Schumacher, the Formula One driver who remains the sport’s most successful player.

The film is due for release in German and Swiss cinemas on 5 December, while the foreign licence rights – including streaming service access – will be up for grabs at the upcoming Cannes film festival, when the film’s trailer will be shown publicly for the first time.

It is likely to compete for attention alongside Maradona, a documentary portrait of the legendary Argentinian footballer Diego Maradona, the screening of which he will attend.

Scenes from Schumacher’s 50th birthday celebrations in January are expected to be included in the film, which will also celebrate the 25th anniversary of his first World Championship success, when he raced to victory over his main rival Damon Hill in Adelaide, Australia, after the two crashed spectacularly.

We surely can’t wait for this legendary release, can you?
