The organization said five people were injured Sunday in a frightening accident in the Formula 3 Macau Grand Prix. The car involved in the accident was completely taken back, but the German driver was injured.
At 4:00 in the morning (before 8:00 am in Lisbon), the young German Sophia overthrew the protection rails as he approached Hotel Lisboa's curve just an hour after Florsh's car was pulled off the high-speed circuit.
The videos posted on the social networks by the spectators on the road show the accident from various angles. Sophia Flörsch's car turns as it prepares for a corner, but does not turn, moving at high speed on the track.
