Ross Brawn has stressed that Formula 1 will do "all in its power" to help Force India survive after the team entered administration last week as a result of its financial struggles.

Following months of uncertainty, Force India formally entered administration on Friday following a hearing at the High Court in London, with driver Sergio Perez, engine supplier Mercedes and sponsor BWT among the creditors who triggered the action.

Administrators are now working to find a buyer for Force India and help save the 400 jobs at the team, which will continue to race as planned in the upcoming races as proceedings continue.

Writing in his post-weekend recap after Hungary, Brawn - F1 managing director, motorsports - wished those entering the summer break well before making special mention of those at Force India.

"This applies especially to those who work at Force India, which is going through a particularly difficult time at the moment," Brawn added.

"Formula 1 will be doing all in its power to ensure the team survives and I truly hope that in the coming days and weeks its future is resolved.

"Over the past few years the Silverstone-based team has been an amazing example of what can be done with limited resources, showing that what you do and how you do it is much more important than the size of your budget."

Force India will continue to be run day-to-day by deputy team principal Bob Fernley and chief operating officer Otmar Szafnauer, with the latter saying last week that fresh investment was "imminent".
