Fast forward to 2018. Of the nearly 30 competitors at the F3 World Cup, Sophia Flörsch was the only woman. For Flörsch, this race is one for the books for another reason: she suffered a serious accident on the track, leaving her hospitalised and requiring an 11-hour operation on her cervical spine. But she never considered waving the white flag and leaving her motorsport career. On the contrary: if given the opportunity, Flörsch will be back at the starting line at the Formula 3 race in Macau, China, this November.
