The Macau Grand Prix has been red flagged following a huge accident involving German driver Sophia Floersch.

The van Amersfoort driver’s car was launched into the air over Sho Tsuboi's and flew over the barriers and into a photographers bunker at barely abated speed, having lost its wheels in a crash earlier down the straight.

Footage of the incident showed that Floersch’s car ended up back on its wheels, and the race was stopped immediately.

There was no immediate news of Floersch’s condition.
