Its not about cherrry picking certain races, its about who is almost always there and who shines only rarely. Senna and Schumacher (MS in his "first career") are great examples of drivers who really did shine with any car they had almost everytime it was wet, dont you agree? Fernando has had few times his set-up spot-on for rainy conditions and he has shone, but usually he is nowhere when conditions are not perfect.
Usually nowhere? What are you talkiing about? He is always miles ahead of his team mates in wet or mixed conditions, showing amazing speed. At China 2010, he finsihed 40 seconds ahead of Massa even with a drive through. He won Korea, again miles ahead of Massa. Or Nurburg 2007, when in classic schumacher style he caught and overtook massa as soon as it started to rain. From memory the only wet race that he has been beaten by a team mate was fuji 2007, so I wonder how you got the idea he is 'nowhere' when conditions are not perfect??
In terms of driving ability in the wet I would put him on terms with anyone, including Schumacher, the only difference is that with fixed race setups its harder to dominate like Schumacher often did in his prime, plus there are more stronger wet weather drivers around than in the 90s.
