Michael Schumacher’s health condition is one of the things that fans are interested to know. They would like to get an update about how he is doing these days. Is he awake? Is he walking already?

There are so many questions but they did not get an answer since Schumacher was put in an induced coma after his skiing accident in December 2013. Almost six years after, fans still have no clear idea of how their racing idol is doing but recently good news has come after it was announced that a documentary has been in the works.

Schumi’s documentary - a film that promises to share his health condition.

According to Variety, the film is simply called “Schumacher” and it will the very first official documentary featuring Michael Schumacher. In May, it was said that the movie is already in the final stages of completion so it should be done by now.

It is a production of award-winning German filmmakers Michael Wech and Hanns-Bruno Kammertöns who is also directing the film. It will initially be released by Rocket Science via Cannes in May 2020.

Family participation in the documentary

The best thing about the documentary is that Michael Schumacher’s family will be participating. They will have interviews and they are expected to share details about Schumi’s condition.

“We are thrilled to have the trusting cooperation of Michael Schumacher’s family and management,” Benjamin Seikel and Vanessa Nöcker of B | 14 FILM told Variety. “Without their support, this film would not have been possible. It is time for a film. And it goes without saying that we are very much aware of the great responsibility we bear here.”

How is Schumi these days?

In any case, while Michael Schumacher’s family remained tight-lipped about his health condition, his friends who are able to visit him at home, are kind enough to share something to the public. Perhaps, he knows that the fans have been suffering too since they have been waiting and continuing to support the F1 champ despite his non-appearance since his accident.

Jean Todt, one of Michael Schumacher's closest friends divulged that there were great improvements in his condition. In fact, he can already watch TV and he is saying this because he was able to watch one racing show with Schumi that last time he saw him, as per The Sun.
