Both Force Indias out of FP2

Force India will not take part in FP2 in Hungary as the team continues to investigate the cause of Sergio Perez's crash.

The Mexican racer made a dramatic exit from the morning's session when his suspension appeared to break.

That led to an accident that concluded with his VJM08 flipping and coming to a rest upside down.

Although Perez had initially hoped that Force India would be able to repair the car in time for FP2, the team has instead announced that neither driver will run.

The team statement read: "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."
