Macau F3 crash: At least four in ’emergency condition’ after Sophia Floersch’s car flies metres off ground at high speed and into media staff

FORMULA 3 driver Sophia Floersch has crashed during the F3 World Cup final in Macau.

In some horrific footage, the 17-year-old German's car can be seen losing control round a corner and launched mid-air over a rival's car and into fences in the media section.

 Floersch is seen as one of the rising stars of motorsports

A statement from Macau Grand Prix organisers have confirmed that Floersch is conscious and has been transferred to hospital following the terrifying incident.

Her car crashed into fellow racer Sho Tsuboi – who has also been taken to hospital.

Three further individuals, a marshal and two photographers were also involved in the accident and have also been transferred to hospital.

The race was immediately red flagged after the incident – and not for the first time as a red flag was waved for a pile-up earlier on in the race.

And after a delay more than an hour the race was restarted.

The footage was taken by Twitter user VanGamerenF1 who was filming the race from one of the packed grandstands.

Floersch is seen as one of the up-and-coming stars in Motorsports.

She previously raced in F4 – and made history in her debut race by becoming the first female to score points in an ADAC Formula 4 race.

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