German teenager Sophia Floersch has suffered a spinal fracture in a terrifying 270km/h crash at the Formula 3 street race at Macau.

Sophia, who is only 17-years-old, lost control of her auto as she sped towards a tight corner and slammed into a wall.

Japanese driver Sho Tsuboi was also involved in the crash and taken to hospital, along with two photographers and a race marshal.

Floersch herself then took to Twitter to provide an update on her condition, remarkably declaring herself "fine".

Floersch, who just moved up to Formula 3 from Formula 4 in 2018, tweeted she is "fine" and will have surgery Monday. Thanks to the @fia and @hwaag_official @MercedesAMGF1 who are taking great care of me.
