Michael Schumacher's wife Corinna says she "misses Michael, but Michael is here" in the new documentary film about the seven-time Formula 1 World Champion.

The film, titled Schumacher, is set to be released on September 15. It will cover the German's F1 career, as well as providing some rare insight into his condition since his skiing accident in December 2013.

Schumacher has not appeared in public since the accident, returning home to Switzerland in 2014 after undergoing surgeries for injuries to his brain.

"Of course, I miss Michael every day," Corinna Schumacher is quoted by RaceFans, amongst other publications. "But it's not just me who misses him: the children, the family, his father, everyone around him."

"Everybody misses Michael, but Michael is here. [It's] different, but he's here, and that gives us strength, I find."

She also confirmed he is continuing to undergo treatment for his injuries.

"We're together," Corinna added. "We live together at home.

"We do therapy, we do everything we can to make Michael better, and to make sure he's comfortable, and to simply make him feel our family, our bond. And no matter what, I will do everything I can. We all will.

"We're trying to carry on as a family the way Michael liked it and still does and we are getting on with our lives. 'Private is private', he always said.

"It's very important to me that he can continue to enjoy his private life as much as possible, Michael always protected us, now we are protecting Michael."

Mick Schumacher made his F1 debut this year having won the Formula 2 title in 2020. In the film, Mick describes the sadness he feels at being unable to discuss his racing career and share other experiences with his father.

"Since the accident these [family] experiences, these moments that I believe many people have with their parents are no longer present, or to a lesser extent, and in my view that is a little unfair," explains Mick.

"I think dad and me, we would understand each other in a different way now simply because we speak a similar language, the language of motorsport, and that we would have much more to talk about.

"And that's where my head is most of the time, thinking that would be so cool. I would give up everything just for that."
