The audience was astonished, in the pit there was pure horror: 17-year-old German junior racer Sophia Flörsch was seriously injured on the narrow and dangerous street circuit in Macau. Images of his racing car, which took off at more than 250 kilometers per hour and uncontrolled accidents through a security fence a few meters high against the collision barrier, let Sunday suspect the worst. Just hours after a severe accident, the Munich woman but reported by Twitter from the hospital: "I want to let everyone know that I'm fine."
He also announced that he would be operated on Monday. Miraculously, after a horror accident in the final World Formula 3, Flörsch became aware and responsive. Although he suffered a spinal fracture, as the organizer said after an in-depth investigation by the head doctor of the Conde S. Januaryio General Hospital in Macao. But his father insisted that his daughter had no signs of paralysis and could do anything. In total, four more people were involved in the accident, which caused an hour of rest in the race. Japanese junior pilot Sho Tsuboi complained of lumbar pain, a photographer suffered liver injuries, another and the marshal suffered facial and head trauma.

"For Sophia and other accident participants – we think of you and continue to hope for the best," tweeted European Formula 3 champion Mick Schumacher.

In their accident at the fourth round Flörsch was in position 15. Initially, the cause of the accident was still unclear. Flörsch clearly lost control of his car in front of the straight curve of Lisbon. He departed in his car and flew with the first tail through and over the security fence, before they hit the cockpit side in the barrier fort, behind the photographer who had the opportunity to take pictures, several meters high.
The car then falls back to the ground. The German Mercedes Formula 1 racing team sent via Twitter the desire for a lot of strength for Flörsch and the others were injured. Flörsch again thanked Silver Arrows for their support.
