Force India is hopeful that it can resume running during third practice on Saturday morning following Sergio Perez's accident the opening session at the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Perez suffered a right rear suspension failure as he went wide at Turn 11 and was pitched into the barriers on the inside of the circuit.

Perez's right front wheel lodged under his chassis and he was launched into a flip, eventually coming to a rest upside down.

Perez was not injured in the accident but Force India parked team-mate Nico Hulkenberg for the remainder of the first session and the entirety of the second while an investigation was conducted.

"We managed to get a good read on the balance and made some useful set-up changes that took us in the right direction," said Perez.

"Unfortunately we had the failure on the rear suspension, which ended our day early. It has cost us a lot of track time, but hopefully we can recover tomorrow to minimise the impact it will have on our final result this weekend."
