Force India will sit out second practice for the Hungarian Grand Prix, as investigations into Sergio Perez’s accident in the morning continue.
Perez crashed heavily at Turn 11 of the Hungaroring circuit during opening practice, rolling his Force India.
A suspected right-rear suspension failure pitted Perez into a spin, and into the barriers on the right-hand side of the track.
Perez’s front-right wheel then became trapped up the car, forcing the Force India into a roll, where it came to rest upside down.
The Mexican was unhurt in the accident, but Force India will not run again on Friday as a precaution.
“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,” reads a team statement.
“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.”
