Formula 3, Sophia Floersch, Race Deferred, Video, Damage



The Macau Grand Prix was stopped during a Formula 3 race when German driver Sophia Floersch went through the air after a high-speed accident.

Floersch, just 17 years old, lost control of his Van Amersfoort Racing car as she jumped toward the narrow right corner and slammed into the inner wall.

She then slid back to the turn and after cutting the edge, her car became airborne before meeting Sho Tsuboi with an incredible speed.

The result of the impact then launched her high up in the air where she was catapulted in the junk window before her car broke into a photographer's bunker and landed on her wheels.

The scary footage was captured from all angles of fans in the presence of the vision that looks like something more of a movie than an actual breed.

Despite the enormous effect of the crash, the FIA ​​confirmed that Floersch was aware and transported to hospitals.

"A serious event has occurred at Round 4 in the 2018 FIA F3 World Cup in Macau with car # 25 Sophia Florsch (GER)", the reading read.

"After evaluating medical personnel, the driver is aware and has been taken to hospital for further evaluation."

Unfortunately, the result of the crash ended with a total of five people being taken to a hospital with two drivers, two photographers and a tram hall.

An update from Macau officials after the race confirmed that the up and coming driver had suffered a spinal cord in the crash, her vital signs being stable.

The incredible effect of the crash was caught from above the bend and slowed down to show the moment Floersch became airborne and cut the barrier before her car was sent back in the pile.

Florsch is seen as one of the prominent stars in Motorsports.

She previously competed in F4 – and made history in her debut race by becoming the first woman to score in an ADAC Formula 4 competition.

She also broke record by becoming the youngest driver to win a Ginneta Junior Championship.

An hour's delay followed when the barrier was repaired and the injured participants also participated before the race was eventually restarted.

After the race came back, it was Red Bull junior Dan Ticktum who crossed the line first and claimed the checkered flag.

Ticktum's victory makes it two years in a row he has claimed victory in Macau.

The impressive 19-year-old escaped the bloodbath behind him as he led the race from start to finish.

After the long delay, Ticktum ran away from the field, claiming he had won 1.2 seconds of his Motopark Academy team mate Joel Eriksson.

Renault Formula 1 junior driver Sacha Fenestraz took his place on the podium after crossing the line in third place.

A total of eight drivers failed to quit thanks to several crashes throughout the course, but it was the scary crash of Floersch who caught everyone's attention.
