Force India will run in final practice after suspension fix

Force India will be able to run in final free practice for the Hungarian Grand Prix after fixing the suspension issues that caused Sergio Perez's crash on Friday.

The Silverstone-based team was forced to skip second practice at the Hungaroring following the Mexican's spectacular roll in first practice.

Following overnight work at its factory, the team has strengthened the area of suspension that failed.

COO Otmar Szafnauer said that the team was satisfied that a good solution had been found.

"We've done a lot of work overnight and we are ready to run," he told Motorsport.com. 

"We believe the failure was caused by vibrations setting up oscillations at the wrong frequency that caused the component to fail."
