'No fear of paralysis' for Sophia Floersch after horror F3 crash

A Race Car Crashes and Goes Airborne at 171 MPH But the Driver's Okay

Floersch, who just moved up to Formula 3 from Formula 4 in 2018, tweeted she is "fine" and will have surgery Monday.

Floersch, Tsuboi, two photographers and a marshall were all injured in the crash. "We reckon she was traveling at [172 mph] at the time."The Macau Grand Prix restarted an hour after the crash.Shortly after the crash, IndyCar driver Robert Wickens took to social media to support Floersch". The marshal suffered a broken jaw and a second individual had abdominal pain from a lacerated liver, according to medical reports the Macau GP sent to AFP.

Frits van Amersfoort, the owner of Van Amersfoort Racing, has said she could have been killed in the crash if she had struck the barrier.

It is yet to be seen if Floersch will be returning as a Formula 3 racer, as a statement put out by her team states she is "not fit to race".

Running 16th, she lost control in a contact down the straight, launched off a kerb and bounced off Tsuboi's TOM's Racing auto.

Floersch was conscious when taken to hospital in the former Portuguese territory, assuring her followers on Twitter that she was "fine".

"Thanks to everybody for the supporting messages".


"After the serious incident today in Macau the FIA is mobilised to help those involved and analyse what happened", he said.

Doctors said the Van Amersfoort Racing driver spent seven hours in surgery on Monday, much longer than the expected four to five hours, because of the bone graft and the need to set up neurological monitoring.

"It was almost a rocket". I haven't seen all accidents in motorsport but this was surely one of the worst I've ever seen.

"I hope everybody's OK after this crash, I wish them the best recovery", said European champion Mick Schumacher, the son of stricken F1 legend Michael, according to the Post.

At least three people have died on the Macau Grand Prix circuit.

Crashes are frequent at the Macau Grand Prix, which this year hosted six auto and motorcycle races on the 6.2-kilometre Guia Circuit around the streets of the island.
