Haas F1 rookie Mick Schumacher has urged fans to watch the upcoming SCHUMACHER documentary when it is released on Netflix on September 5.

Speaking ahead of his own maiden F1 outing at Spa – almost 30 years to the day of Michael Schumacher's debut at the 1991 Belgian Grand Prix – Mick Schumacher was asked about the in-depth SCHUMACHER Netflix documentary that will be released on the Dutch GP weekend.

"Well obviously I think that it’s going to be a very emotional documentary for many people," he said. "It’s [Netflix has] brought a lot of people into the sport but for a lot of people, when they were growing up, they watched my dad, so it’s been very emotional to see it.

"The best thing I could say is for everybody to have a look at it, just watch it and experience it for themselves because I don’t really want to, let’s say, spoil too much," he added.

Mick drove his father's Jordan 191 – the car in which Michael made his debut – at Silverstone in July but is readying to drive for Haas in the Belgian Grand Prix this weekend having achieved success here in junior formulae.

That success, plus Michael's own history at Spa, has left Mick salivating over his Spa F1 debut: "[Not] just because of the history of my dad but also I’ve had a few good races here. I’ve had my first pole position, my first race win in 2018 here with F3, which then became a streak of muiltiple race wins so definitely, yes, it’s a track that I enjoy a lot and I enjoy a lot coming back close to home.

"A lot of fans come here to support me for numerous years now so yes, it’s a great place," concluded the German rookie driver.
