Ralf Schumacher has praised the recent Netflix documentary released about his brother and former F1 driver Michael.
The documentary, titled Schumacher, was made with the blessing of the Schumacher family. It focuses on Michael’s life and the brain injury he sustained while skiing in 2013.
Interviews are provided by close relatives of Michael, including Ralf (father Rolf), Corinna (wife), son Mick (son) and Gina-Marie (daughter).
Schumacher’s brother has revealed he only saw the documentary in full after in was released on September 15 but has praised the “private insights” and tasteful manner of the film:
“There were a lot of years when I wasn’t involved. Of course there would have been a lot more, it was a very long time,” said Michael’s brother speaking to German outlet Sport1.
“But I think it’s done very, very nicely, at least in terms of motorsport and sport.
“There are also many personal insights from the family, particularly the children and their mothers. That was a great idea.”

A six-time F1 race winner himself Ralf has fond memories of his childhood with Michael and how his older brother helped him race:
“We had a good childhood; we spent a lot of time together. We looked forward to the winter when the kart track was closed, and we had more time for ourselves. That was great.
“We had a great time together, especially at such a level and in the most beautiful places in the world. Those were wonderful times.
