Sophia Floersch has undergone a successful 11 hour long surgery, one which treated her broken vertebra and dealt with the bone splinter quite close to her spinal cord.
Updates had started coming in from last night about Sophia’s operation and how everything had gone well.
She is now recuperating from the operation and will be in Macau for sometime before she is able to travel.
In her long Instagram message, Sophia thanked her fans and the entire motorsport fraternity for their love and support in this anxious time for her and her family.
She went onto thank her doctor for the surgery and then cheekily thanked the Dallara Group for having built such a stable chassis, one that helped her survive the horrible accident.

I survived the operation which took 11 hours well. Hope from now on it only gets better. I have to stay a few more days in Macau until i am transportable. I want to thank all of my fans for every single get-well wishes, which I now start reading. This really motivates me and gives me courage. My thoughts are also with everyone who was involved in the accident. I hope everybody is healthy. At the accident were really nice people, which I still have in my mind. Thank you for all the encouraging, calming words in these tough minutes in my car. A real big thanks to the medical staff here in Macau for the friendly and professional treatment. A huge thank you to the local FIA rescue-team, @mercedesamgf1 , @hwaag_official, the @fia.official and their medical team in the background and the Macau GP organisation, who support me in the best way. Also a special thank to Dr. Riccardo Ceccarelli and last but not least my Team @vanamersfoortracing, @facuregaliaoficial and @fhabsburg62 , who all suffer with me – you are phenomenal. 🤜🏻I’m going to come back!🤛🏻btw… @dallaragroup has build a very stabil chassis. #poweredbypassion #racegirl #onefamily /ad
Sophia has a long road to recovery ahead of her but with the right kind of support from the medical staff, her family and her fans, we could see her get back into that racing car very soon.
But until then, we can hope and pray that her rehabilitation process goes according to plan and that she can get back to the best of her health soon enough.
Stay strong, Sophia.
