Schumacher Netflix documentary praised for "private insights" by brother Ralf

Ralf Schumacher has praised the recent Netflix documentary released about his brother and former F1 driver Michael.

The two-hour documentary 'Schumacher' was filmed with the blessing from the family of the seven-time World Champion looking back on Michael's career and subsequent brain injury which he suffered whilst skiing in 2013.

The film includes interviews from close members of Michael's family with Ralf, father Rolf, wife, Corinna, son Mick and daughter Gina-Marie all featuring.

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.

"Also, a lot of private insights, also from the family, especially the children and their mother. I thought that was really great, very open."

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 good times."
