Floersch was conscious and transported to hospital, later tweeting that she would undergo surgery on Monday.

The marshal, Chan Cha In, suffered fractured a bone in his face and picked up several lacerations.

She later took to Twitter and thanked everyone for their support.

Ferrari junior driver Guan Yu Zhou explained to Australian outlet News.au how the incident unfolded.

"Sophia was really close to Jehan (Daruvala), so when Jehan braked early she had no time to react".

"I hope everybody's OK after this crash, I wish them the best recovery", said European champion Mick Schumacher, the son of stricken F1 legend Michael, according to the Post.

Pole man Peter Hickman claimed his third Macau Grand Prix victory in Saturday's red-flagged race in southern China.
