Considering the Ariel atom v8 is the lowest, the more powerful the more tricky a car is invite wet, but I think torque is also a factor. Turbo cars tend to be much worst in the corners in general. The 458 is much faster than the 12C in the wet for example. No matter how much downforce a P1 has, it would be slow in the wet

Fair point. Both I'd say.
A car with that much power, and RWD is clearly meant to be fast and put the driver in control. The more room for error(wet lap) the more error is personified(slower laptime)...

..Driver focused, Or Fast Laptime focused? Id go with the 2nd.

The fact that it's so difficult to drive in wet conditions just goes to show how driver-focused this car is.

It is so focused to work perfectly and generate magic amounts of grip at optimal (normal) conditions, that it completely falls apart on standing water like the wet handling track.

Not that it matters at all whatsoever :D

At least we got one track where P1 won't be the fastest :D

Maybe because of track focused tires.
