The first official feature documentary about Formula One racing legend Michael Schumacher is set to release in December.

Titled Schumacher, the film is due to hit German and Swiss cinemas on December 5, with foreign licence rights up for grabs at the Cannes film festival.

Made by German filmmakers Michael Wech and Hanns-Bruno Kammertons, the film’s trailer will be shown publicly for the first time at Cannes. 

It'll feature interviews with Michael's father Rolf, his wife Corinna, his children Gina and Mick, and many of the key players in his career, along with unseen archive footage.

The German driver is the only driver in history to win seven Formula One World Championships, five of which were won consecutively with Ferrari.
