In December, the German television channel ARD will release a new, five-part documentary about the life of Michael Schumacher (54), exactly ten years after his skiing accident. The series provides an insight into Schumacher’s rise as a racer. It is not known whether his accident and current condition are also discussed.
On December 29, it will be exactly ten years ago that seven-time F1 world champion Michael Schumacher experienced a serious skiing accident in Meribel, France. The German hit his head on a rock and suffered serious brain damage, despite wearing a ski helmet. He was in a coma for a while, but survived.
Since then, Schumacher has been staying at his home on Lake Geneva in Switzerland. He is assisted by wife Corinna and a medical team, but very little is known about his condition – the family has released almost no details in the past ten years. In an earlier documentary on Netflix from 2021, his wife said that Schumacher is “still recovering from the injuries he sustained”. “It’s different, but it’s there.”

Since his accident, Schumacher has never appeared in public again, but he has by no means been forgotten. On December 28, the German channel ARD will release a new, five-part documentary that gives viewers an insight into Schumacher’s life: ‘Being Michael Schumacher’. The series follows him from his first steps in karting to his seventh world title in Formula 1.
It is still unclear whether the documentary also provides more insight into the circumstances of his accident and his current condition.
