Ecuador's only first half opportunity came when Michael Arroyo burst down the left flank and Enner Valencia met his cross with a downward header which was blocked by the feet of France keeper Hugo Lloris. France almost broke the deadlock shortly after the blog url interval when Bacary Sagna crossed from the right and Antoine Griezmanns volley bounced off Dominguez on to the post. Ecuador's see here hopes suffered a major blow, though, moments later when Antonio Valencia was sent off for a challenge on Lucas Digne which left the France left back needing treatment. However, the decision brought Ecuador to life and they should have had the lead when Cristian Noboa was put through by Enner Valencia but lost his balance and screwed a shot wide.

Gastaldi Confident Austria Will Suit Lotus | Motorsportstalk











The team principal was left cursing his bad luck after both Romain Grosjean and Pastor Maldonado were forced to retire from last weekends Canadian Grand Prix, with both sniffing at the points. In Monaco, Grosjean did finish in eighth place, but the team could have fared far better had it not been for an early incident. We have potential which is still to be fulfilled, Gastaldi said. Canada was a kick where it hurts for everyone at the team but we took stock, identified the issues and have taken action to avoid any repeats. The last thing you want is both cars sat in the garage at the end of a race, but thats what we had. Thankfully it is very rare for home page us. In fact, it was Maldonados third retirement in seven races, and the Venezuelan remains rooted to the bottom of the drivers standings. Nevertheless, Gastaldi believes that the fast-flowing nature of the Red Bull Ring which hosts F1 for the first time since 2003 next weekend should suit the E22 car. Monaco and Montreal were both races which didnt play to our strengths and additionally we had reliability problems at both of them, he explained. Austria looks to be more positive in terms of its potential for more information us, as well as the next few races too.
