    That is absolutely insane! Hitting the top of the fence first to turn the car vertically may have saved some lives. Otherwise, it was heading straight like a missile into that viewing tower.

    Edit: I can't stop watching this. Atleast the marshal on the ground who looked closest to the impact seemed to be ok, he was still able to wave the red flag. God knows what carnage happened inside that tower though.

    Good to hear she'll live. The speed at which she hits the steel structure as she comes to a complete stop is phenomenal. Cant imagine what her family was feeling initially after watching the impact. If there was ever a crash that youd consider retiring from racing that is it.

    **** me, I was just thinking about the crash in the movie Freejack the other day and I'll be buggered if that isn't as close as it gets.

    That is one of the biggest crashes I have seen in a long time, how she survived is truly incredible :eek:

    Even more insane from this angle.

    That appears like a slowish corner yet most reports are stating she was going over 250kmph. Need to see footage before corner to have greater understanding of what happened.

    "Florsch hit the back of Jehan Daruvala's car on the high-speed run to Lisboa on lap four and then launched over the inside kerb into the car of Sho Tsuboi.

    The speed-trap figure before the braking area showed that she was travelling at 171.6 mph [276.2 kph] at the time.

    The impact with Tsuboi lifted her car over the barrier and into an area occupied by marshals and photographers."

    Video of that would be pretty crazy too if anyone finds any

    This type of thing happens at almost every desert race in Mexico.
    Those people are seriously lucky to be alive.

    It almost looks fake, she was going that fast compared to everyone else.

    Good to see Sophia is up and about. She posted this up on her Instagram earlier, at Dubai airport with RIC.
