Germany's 17-year-old Formula Three driver Sophia Floersch has sustained a spinal fracture following a huge accident at the Macau Grand Prix, her team said on Sunday.
The Van Amersfoort Racing driver lost control into the Lisboa bend before flying over the barriers and into a photographers' bunker at high speed.
"Just wanted to let everybody know that I am fine but will be going into surgery tomorrow morning," Floersch wrote on Twitter. "Thanks to the @ fia and @ hwaag-official @ MercedesAMGF1 who are taking great care of me. Thanks to everybody for the supporting messages. Update soon. "
Japanese driver Sho Tsuboi, who Floersch crashed into, was taken to hospital with back pain. Race organisers confirmed two photographers and a marshal were also in hospital.
Pole-sitter Daniel Ticktum was leading the race when it was stopped.
