A year on from her horror crash racing driver Sophia Floersch revisits the circuit where she cheated death

German race driver Sophia Floersch has raced on the circuit that she cheated death on last year in a horror smash.

The 18-year-old crashed in a Formula Three race in Macau in which she fractured her spine and had to under-go an 11 hour operation.

The youngster is now back in the driving seat and she has said that quitting the sport was never an option.

Floersh said: "[I feel] very good, if I'm honest. Yes, the accident was very bad, but I'm glad to be back.

"For me it was clear from the beginning that I want to go back to Macau.

"The race here is a highlight for every Formula Three driver. It's part of the World Cup.

"For me, it was clear from the beginning that I wanted to go back." She told Sport1.

The driver completed eight laps at Macau over the weekend after qualifying 23rd for the race. She was forced to retire the race due to issues with her car.
