Floersch sustained the injury at the street circuit when her car flew off the track and into a photographers’ bunker at high speed. Her Van Amersfoort team said on Monday that doctors had ruled out fear of paralysis.

“I’m going to come back,” Floersch said on Facebook.

“I survived the operation which took 11 hours. Hope from now on it only gets better. I have to stay a few more days in Macau until I’m 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.”
