Sophia Floersch hopes that the worst is behind her after undergoing 11 hours of surgery on a spinal fracture following her horror crash at the Macau Grand Prix.
Floersch suffered the injury in a frightening incident that saw her airborne car flying backwards over the edge of the circuit and into a large hoarding on the other side, close to where marshals and photographers were stationed.
The 17-year-old German was fortunate to survive the crash, with Van Amersfoort Racing owner Frits van Amersfoort saying Floersch had an "angel on her shoulder".
Floersch offered an update on her condition via Facebook on Tuesday and thanked those who had supported her since Sunday.
An FIA statement on Sunday revealed that fellow driver Sho Tsuboi, two members of the media and a marshal had also been transferred to a local hospital in a conscious state for further evaluation.
