    very nice biography, with little cosmetic mistakes
    I was never a guy who cheered for sportsmen or teams like most of other guys. Except for Michael. At a very early age of 7 i became a big Schumacher fan and followed all his carrer and race weekends very detailed. You could sense on him some special energy, dedication, selfconfidence, determination like no other driver had. Yes he had 2,3 mistakes in his carrer, but who didnt on such limit, dedication and close battle in area you love?

    For people like me this documentary is nothing particulary very new, but still a very nice reminder of what i have been part of and it made me realize how much all this really meaned to me and how much i miss those intensive days, with this beautiful F1 cars and this orgasmic sound of those days.

    The highlight of this documentary for me is the sountrack. It could have not been made better. Christian Wilckens & Peter Hinderthür made a perfect job here. Every track feels like its perfect for the situation. Masterpiece album!

    Two negative things about this documentary are for me that they used some kind of tuned up sound on top of the real F1 sound of that time (the best you can hear this at Silvestrone 99 scene - terrible) and what really annoyed me that they used Rubens Barrichelos Ferrari in a few scenes instead of Michaels footage. I mean, come on. They could have showed so many of Michaels great overtaking manovers. This is also one thing that i wish they would cover it better. Show some of his greatest overtakes. More of the crazy atmosphere that his fans were making on the circuits. So the younger generation for which Michael is something new would understand more what kind of times those were.

    Anyway, a great documentary about a unique sportsman that had so many fans. This documentary showed also good that Michael that private man behind this big media and sport person facade was a very nice, normal person, for whom family was the most important thing. I miss him so much and this documentary will be always there to remind me on those special magical days.

    Celebration of a legend, a father, husband, son and everything else he is.
    I think we all could go on about how different and perhaps better this documentary could have been or should have been in terms of its coverage and overall message. However, what if it's simply a celebration and a reminder of him to us and to his family by his family?

    There surely is more to him than this documentary covered. I'm just happy I was able to watch him race sometimes during those 5 years on TV and I'm grateful to his family for this reminder. I miss him very much too. Thank you!

    Brilliant but sad at the same time
    I had the privilege to race on the small circuit where he started his career and was able to spend an hour with him alone in the smallest rental car. Michael was a great personality and a great driver. And this documentary pays tribute to that in a fantastic way. He is still there even when he is not in the public eye. He is still a father and a husband even after the tragic accident. His life was always an emotional ride and so is this film. Well done! And get better Michael!
