German driver Sophia Floersch has suffered a spinal fracture in a high-speed crash during a Formula 3 race in Macau but said from hospital she was "fine".
Videos of the accident posted online show race cars negotiating a right turn when Sophia's auto suddenly hurtles in the air above the tracks, strikes another vehicle driven by Sho Tsuboi, flies over the race barriers and crashes into the fencing behind them.
Everyone involved in the crash, including Floersch, Tsuboi, two photographers, and a marshal, was rushed to the hospital following the incident.
Both Floersch and Tsuboi have been transported to a local hospital, though a statement released by race organizers has confirmed that Floersch was conscious in the aftermath of the accident.
A medical report released by Floersch's team, Van Amersfoort Racing, revealed the German was conscious but that she had sustained a spinal fracture. Thanks to the @fia and @hwaag_official @MercedesAMGF1 who are taking great care of me.
