They still race in the rain. The racing only stops when there's simply too much of it.
If one wants to be flippant about it, let's say this: when a driver like Markus Winkelhock leads a grand prix, it's probably too wet for a grand prix.
except they don't race in the rain.
When the weather requires full wets, they ALWAYS start behind the safety car, until its dry enough for intermediates.
Its an absolute JOKE.
And yet, they run full wets in qualifying, because they have to do the session and can't delay it.
Full wet racing is absolutely awesome, both for the spectator and for the race in general, but, nope, can't have good racing can we? Can't run the risk of any damage to the cars because the sponsors who pay for those cars won't be happy.
I remember the days when racing with full wets was absolutely fine...and it wasn't that long ago.
What a farce of a motorsport category f1 is now.
I can also add that I was there, sat at the last corner during both quali and race.
Watching them squirming around in Q3, balancing the throttle, wheelspinning in 4th gear accelerating out that last corner, I can tell you that it obviously isn't Just about setup. It was actually spectacular.
Skill obviously plays a big part when the rain comes, much more than the dry.
