Miraculously, two photographers and a track marshal also survived after being caught up in the spectacular incident.

Fortunately, a statement from her team Van Amersfoort Racing has confirmed that Florsch is conscious and in a stable condition. Tsuboi, the driver Floersch hit, is suffering from back pain as a result of the crash, with two photographers and a marshal also in hospital with different injuries.

"Thanks to the FIA, HWA AG and Mercedes AMG, who are taking great care of me".


"A photographer Chan Weng Wang suffered a laceration to his liver and Japan's Minami Hiroyuki suffered a concussion". "Further updates will be provided as soon as possible", said the Macau Grand Prix Organising Committee in a statement cited by multiple sources, including the South China Morning Post and shared on Twitter by Italy's Prema Powerteam.

She later took to Twitter and thanked everyone for their support.

Floersch was conscious and transported to hospital, later tweeting that she would undergo surgery on Monday.


Ferrari junior driver Guan Yu Zhou explained to Australian outlet News.au how the incident unfolded.

He was behind the German on the circuit, and the Prema Powerteam driver told AutoSport.com: "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". In 2018, she began participating in Formula 3, which is regarded by many as a major stepping stone for Formula 1 hopefuls.

A German teenager race driver has revealed she is "fine" just hours after a 172mph high-speed Formula Three crash left her with a fractured spine and injured several others.
