Macau F3 World cup Crash involving Sophia Floersch stuns Motorsport world

Teen driver Sophia Floersch suffered a spinal fracture after an airborne crash in the Formula 3 Macau Grand Prix on Sunday

German teenager Sophia Floersch has suffered a spinal fracture in a terrifying 270km/h crash at the Formula 3 street race at Macau.

The vehicle hit an area populated with photographers and race marshals and four others were sent to hospital with Floersch.

The latest medical report has claimed Floersche has a spinal fracture.

Video posted on social media shows the Van Amersfoort Racing driver losing control into a bend before flying over the barriers and into a photographers' bunker at high speed.

Florsch's auto had lost its wheels in an earlier crash on the approach to the tight corner.

One of the drivers, Guan Yu Zhou, who was behind Floersch said, "First of all it was such a scary moment". "She hit Jehan's right-rear, and that spun her around straight into Lisboa, and she flew into the other vehicle".

She then lost control of her damaged auto and was launched over the kerbs and another competitor's vehicle.

In a statement released FIA confirmed that Floersch was conscious while being transported to the hospital.

On lap five, Jessopp got past Johnson and went straight after Webb for third, levering the former grand prix star aside before beginning to go after Rutter, who was almost five seconds ahead.

Of the others injured, Tsuboi was also suffering from back pain but is not believed to have suffered serious injury, while marshal Chan Cha In was determined to have suffered a fractured facial bone along with lacerations, and photographers Chan Weng Wang and Minami Hiroyuki suffered a liver laceration and a concussion, respectively.

Floersch is one of the upcoming stars in Motorsports. She also broke records by becoming the youngest driver to win a Ginneta Junior Championship.
