Perez will not run in FP2 after crash

Sergio Perez will not run in second practice for the Hungarian Grand Prix following his accident in the morning session.

The Mexican Force India driver escaped injury after his car rolled following a spin out of Turn 11 caused by a failure of the rear suspension.

His car was heavily damaged as a result, and Perez will be unable to take part in FP2.

Force India is still investigating the issue to determine whether teammate Nico Hulkenberg runs or not in the second session.

"At the moment, he won't run," said the team's sporting director Andy Stevenson. "We will only run when we're completely confident. Safety first, every single time.

"Once we understand it, and we know it's safe, then we're happy to run. Until then, we won't. Watch this space." 

Perez was also reprimanded for a doing a practice start from the left side of the pitlane, which is not allowed.
