Racing in the wet is one of the biggest challenges a driver will face. It’s the great leveler of machinery and allows that moment when the very best drivers can outshine their cars, showing off their incredible feel and car control.

Think Schumacher in Spain in ’96, Hamilton at Silverstone in ’08, Senna at Monaco in ’84, Senna at Donington in ’93 or, Senna any time it happened to rain. Or, as it happens, any other time.

In this video, I explain how racing in the wet is such a challenge and demonstrate the techniques great F1 drivers use – to extract the most from their machinery in rainy conditions.
