Michael Schumacher health update: How is Schumacher NOW? Will he be in new documentary?

Michael Schumacher, the seven-time Formula 1 world champion, suffered a traumatic head injury in December 2013. The racing legend was skiing off-piste at the Meribel ski resort in France and was left in a coma for six months after he fell at a relatively low speed and hit his head on a rock. Schumacher, who has two children and a wife - Corinna - is said to have been “lucky to survive” the devastating accident.

How is Michael Schumacher now?

Updates regarding Schumacher’s road back to health following the tragic fall has been scarce.

The Formula 1 legend’s health has been a closely guarded secret and updates have only been issued by his management company, not from his family.

But in January 2019, the 50-year-old’s family issued a rare statement about their beloved family member.

The statement said: “You can be sure that he is in the very best of hands and that we are doing everything humanly possible to help him.

“Please understand we are following Michael’s wishes and keeping such a sensitive subject as his health in privacy.”

Schumacher is believed to be receiving medical care at his family home near Lake Geneva, Switzerland.

It has been suggested his personal health care bills have exceeded £20million, due to being looked after at home.

Will Michael Schumacher be in new documentary?

For the first time since the tragic ski accident, the Schumacher family will appear on screen to speak about the racing hero.

The new documentary, called Schumacher, will be unveiled this week at Cannes Film Festival.

The film will feature interviews with Schumacher’s family and never-before-seen footage of the legend at home with his family, before and after the accident.

The Schumacher documentary will feature interviews from his wife Corinna and the couple’s two children Mick, 20, and Gina, 22.

According to The Times, Schumacher’s father Rolf will also appear in the film, interviewed by award-winning filmmakers Michael Wech and Hanns-Bruno Kammertons.

Only the trailer will be revealed at the Cannes Film Festival and the feature-length documentary is due to be released in German and Swiss cinemas on December 5.

However, foreign licence rights are said to be up for grabs at the film festival and big streaming services including Amazon and Netflix could potentially bid for rights to stream the film in the UK.
