Yea that really got me. As a father, that was tough to watch. I love celebrating the successes, however small they may be, of my children.

I've listened to a podcast with Mick on it. His parents did a great job raising him it seems. Very mature, confident, self aware kid. Hope he achieves whatever professional goals he has. And always praying for Michael….
You know, everyone's waiting to see if Mick has inherited any of his fathers "skill" behind the wheel. It just hit me. You know what he did get from his father? The grit and tenacity. You've gotta be one tough individual to see that accident happen to your father with your own eyes at age 14 and manage to stay this strong for yourself and your family. What a tough kid.

I just started watching it - o far it's really great ! It's up on Netflix right now

I watched and now own the film done on Senna, that is both amazing and heart wrenching to watch...I watch every six months, just see if I missed any parts to it.


Cheers,
Merlin

Thoroughly enjoyed it, glad they spent most of the movie focusing on his struggles to get to where he got while not having the finances of some others. Great telling of his work ethic and determination to perfect his craft.

Agree with others here, very sad watching his family talk about his accident.

Watched it twice, enjoyed it both times.

Only critique would be that they made Damon Hill look like a bit of a sore loser (IMO) after the crash in Adlaide. Completely negating the fact that he won the WDC in 1996.

Really tough to watch Mick talk about his dad. Money, fame, and success can't replace time with those you love, but I'm sure Michael is proud of how Mick has handled himself at a young age

In the days of billionaire sons f1 drivers it is refreshing to see that Michael came from a very humble background. Honest hardworking people with a passion for motorsports.

Just watched the film. It's definitely something you'll want to watch more than once and it'll get your right in the feels, especially if you were watching F1 while MSC was in his prime.

Watched it tonight thought it was very good, but left me feeling a bit sad.

Watching the on-board footage, he really was 'at one with the car'.

Will always be the 'GOAT' in my book

It was filmed in the style of those ambulance chasing law firm infomercial testimonials. I couldn’t get through it without skipping sections.

I understand they were trying to establish the fact Schumacher had respect for Senna and was his hero but they way they did it, felt like “that’s too hard to show, let’s skim over it.” Including Senna’s accident footage of him being carried into the helicopter was disrespectful.

Thumbs down for this one. They could have found someone better to make this documentary.
