Mick Schumacher: Netflix's Schumacher Documentary is the best ever made


The German driver knows what he has to do to prove himself to Ferrari.

The Australian Grand Prix podcast In the Fast Lane has released its latest episode featuring F1® driver Mick Schumacher.

The 22-year-old joined In the Fast Lane co-hosts Matt Clayton and Michael Lamonato to discuss the move to F1® and reveals his take on Netflix’s Schumacher documentary, which he says is a faithful depiction of his father’s incredible career.


“I think it’s a great documentary. I think it’s the best ever made obviously in many ways,” said Schumacher.

“I am just really proud of all that he has achieved and it’s even better now with that documentary. It’s been able to also show to the outside world how tough it has been, how much work he’s put into it and that things haven’t, you know, been given to him,” he continued.

Mick is currently racing in his first Formula 1® season with Haas, but he doesn’t let the legacy of his surname and its association with Ferrari distract him behind the wheel.

“I know what I have to do to prove myself, so they (Ferrari) have always been keeping a very close eye on me and helping me in many different ways,” said Schumacher.

“With all the history that people combine with Ferrari and Schumacher – I think it’s a very special combination and hopefully something that can be revived in the future.”

The podcast is available on Spotify, Google Podcasts and Apple Podcasts platforms.
