Force India has confirmed it will not participate in the second free practice session for the Hungarian Grand Prix as it investigates the cause of Sergio Perez's spectacular crash in FP1.
The Mexican suffered a right rear suspension problem on the exit of turn 11, a failure that pitched him into the wall before rolling over when a wheel became lodged under the chassis.
Coming to rest upside down, though Perez was able to walk away from the incident and has suffered no injuries, Force India remain uncertain as to what caused him to crash.
As a precaution, neither he nor Nico Hulkenberg will take part in FP2, but is confident it will return to the track on Saturday.
“Sahara Force India will not take part in this afternoon's second practice session at the Hungaroring as the team continues to investigate a suspension problem, which caused Sergio Perez to crash this morning. Sergio's car suffered significant damage to the bodywork, wings and floor, and repairs are ongoing.
“As a precaution, the team has chosen not to run Nico Hulkenberg this afternoon. The team will work hard to fully understand the cause of the failure and find a resolution in order to be ready for Saturday's free practice session.”
