Shortly after the second restart Florsch appeared to have lost control before Lisboa corner as her car is pictured travelling backwards, before launching over a rival’s car, flying through the fences and crunching into a temporary structure, in front of the Lisboa Hotel, on the outside of the corner where photographers and marshals were stationed.

Of the others injured, Joe Saward reports: “The others involved include a marshal Chan Cha In, who suffered facial lacerations, a broken jaw plus an abrasion to his upper abdomen wall. A photographer Chan Weng Wang suffered a laceration to his liver and Japan’s Minami Hiroyuki suffered a concussion.”

During the main race, on Lap 4, she made contact with fellow driver Jehan Daruvala, who was reportedly slowing for erroneously-displayed yellow flags on the straight between Mandarin Corner (Turn 3) and Lisboa Bend (Turn 4).
