Michael Schumacher, the seven-time Formula One World Champion, is making headlines once again. This time, it’s for the Netflix documentary ‘Schumacher,’ which chronicles his life on and off the track. After suffering a traumatic brain injury in a terrible skiing accident in December 2013, the German driver’s glittering racing career was cut short. Following that, he was placed in a medically induced coma and has remained out of the public eye ever since.

Over the years, Schumacher was remembered for more than just special occasions. His personal life became a talking point, especially since his family provided sporadic updates on his recovery progress. Following the accident, his net worth was one of the topics of discussion, as he was subjected to various treatments in the hopes of returning to normalcy.
