Perez fine after Hungarian GP practice crash
Force India speedy, Sergio Perez walked away uninjured from a magnificent flip in first practice for the Hungarian GP after appearing to suffer a rear suspension failure.

Perez suffered a rear suspension failure and lost control of his Force India on the exit of turn 11 before hitting the barriers on the opposite side of the track and his extricate right tyre flipped the Force India onto its roof as he slid back onto the road.

Seeing the Mexican climb from the car was a relief for all watching with the loss of Jules Bianchi hanging over the Hungaroring paddock this weekend.

Perez was swiftly taken to the medical centre as a precaution but emerged waving to the grandstands.

“It was a really bad accident, pretty unlucky,” said Perez. “The track was dirty and I went on the astroturf and I collided on the other side of the track at a very bad angle, so it made the car roll over.

“But everything’s alright. It was a strange accident. I thought it was under control but the astroturf was very dirty which is why I went in the wall. We’ll have to check everything in detail.”
