Force India's Sergio Perez was left to rue a mistake in Q2 as he was knocked out during the second segment of qualifying at the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Perez slid wide at Turn 5 as the circuit dried in Q2 and he was bumped down the order to 13th position, from where he will start on Sunday.

"Qualifying in P13 is a very disappointing result," he said.

"Today we had everything we needed to be in Q3, especially in these conditions.

"We were among the first to switch to dry tyres, but when it came to the end of the session I wasn’t able to put together a good enough lap to finish in the top 10.

"I made a mistake in Turn 5 and that cost me more than a second.

"It’s a shame as I think we had great potential, but it goes to show how difficult it is to get the right lap at the right time. Starting where we are is going to make the race very challenging.

"A good start will be crucial and we need to choose the right strategy because overtaking here is not easy."
