German Formula Three race car driver Sophia Floersch was involved in a horrific crash back in November during a race in China. Her car went airborne and she suffered a concussion and a fractured spine as a result of the crash.

The now 18-year-old sat down with 7 News Sydney for her first interview since the accident. Not surprisingly, Floersch says she has no intentions of quitting and is hoping to get back behind the wheel in a race as soon as March of next year.
It was one of the most gut wrenching moments of the year. When a racing car driver became airborne in Macau at incredible speed. It's still hard to see how @SophiaFloersch survived. @hughwhitfeld #SophiaFloersch #7News pic.twitter.com/AqkfnoYCvd

This is one tough young woman. I don’t think there are a lot of people who would be trying to get back in a race car if they just fractured their spine crashing in one.
