Pirelli hints unlucky Michael Schumacher will win upcoming European Grand Prix and its will records eighth different winner in 2012 Formula 1.

Pirelli’s this suggestion with the German’s qualifying performance; grid position is the important aspect for the European GP.

Seven-time world champion qualified on pole at Monaco but can’t start from the front place because he received five place grid penalty in Spanish GP incident.

Pirelli motorsport boss Paul Hembery hints Schumacher could get back to winning style.

“I think you have to look at someone like, maybe Michael getting the pole position,” Hembery told Autosport. “

“He probably would have won Monaco if he hadn’t been penalised, so why not there? Michael for Valencia, that’s where the money needs to go.

“We know Valencia is a tough track to create an exciting race. It’s hard to overtake and it’s got elements of Monaco from that point of view.”

“There will be some high temperatures, of course, and we’re going there with the soft and medium tyre, so we should have less degradation.”

“There will not be the challenge that we had in Canada, with the super soft being pushed to its limit, so that is why track position is going to be fundamental. You’ve got to really get a good qualifying in Valencia.”

“The teams themselves have got a pretty good idea of what they’re aiming for, but it doesn’t mean they can obtain what they want,” he added.
