It was a scary sight at a Formula 3 race in Macau, China after 17-year-old driver Sophia Floersch's car came off the ground and crashed into a catch fence outside of the racecourse.

As she was approaching a slow right turn, Floersch's car lost control. She was near the side rail as she approached the turn going much faster than any of the other racers. There was another car on her outside coming up on the turn that Floersch made contact with before getting airborne and crashing.

She suffered a spinal fracture in the crash and three others were also injured in the incident.

Floersch, who just moved up to Formula 3 from Formula 4 in 2018, tweeted she is "fine" and will have surgery Monday.

Floersch was 22nd in the Formula 3 standings entering the race.
