Nöcker went on to say that it is high time for the life story of Michael Schumacher story to be revealed via film.

Unlike previous film portraits of Schumacher, the making of the film by the Hamburg production house BI 14 Film has received the full backing of his family, including his wife of 24 years, Corinna, and the couple's two children, Gina, 22, and Mick, 20, both of whom have won sporting accolades, for western horse riding and Formula 2 racing respectively.

Benjamin Seikel from B14 Film hailed the family's trust with such a sensitive and ambitious film.

The film "Schumacher" is to be released on December 5, first in German and Swiss cinemas, but also possibly in other countries.

"At the same time, we say thank you very much for your friendship and wish you a healthy and happy year 2019".
