Although he is no longer racing, Michael Schumacher has a decorated record that is nearly impossible to match. Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes may overtake Schumacher in 2021, but the amount of silverware, fame, and adoration he has amassed makes him a legend and an icon. Perhaps he was destined for more, but his F1 career was cut short in 2013 due to a tragic, life-threatening accident. Schumacher stepped away from racing after suffering a serious injury while skiing in the Swiss alps, and the world received sporadic updates on his recovery. After ‘Formula 1: Drive to Survive’ and ‘A Life of Speed: The Juan Manuel Fangio Story,’ the German racer will now be a key figure in Netflix’s latest F1 content. The film, titled ‘Schumacher,’ is about the life and times of the seven-time World Drivers’ Champion.
