VIDEO: Macau Grand Prix stopped after horror Sophia Floersch crash

Formula 3's Macau Grand Prix was red flagged this morning following a horror crash from 17-year-old driver, Sophia Floersch, which saw the German's car become airborne before crashing over the trackside barrier and into a photographer gallery, with the race resuming after a safety inspection.

After the opening turn, various cars were involved in collisions which resulted in a safety car period. The race was swiftly resumed, only to be halted again after Floersch struck the car of Sho Tsuboi at the Lisboa Bend which sent her terrifyingly off the track into the air.

News of Floersch's health started filtering through following the accident, and thankfully it has been reported the driver was conscious as she was taken to hospital, along with Tsuboi and a handful of onlookers who were also involved in the melee.

Dan Ticktum led the race before the incident following his acquisition of pole position, with action resuming in Macau just over an hour after a safety inspection.

Subsequent reports released show that Floersch suffered a fractured spine during the incident.
