Because driving in the wet requires a different skillset than driving a regular dry race and finishing the race is part of that as well. To some extent driving in the dry on any particular track is something you can learn just by practise and repetition...brake here, 3rd gear there, clip apex there etc etc. In the wet though, the track is changing all the time and it becomes more about instinct, feeling how the car is moving and adapting all the time. To me, that is a real test of natural talent. I agree that this is somewhat subjective as one could also argue that being able to eke out that last tenth in the dry through practise and repitition is. Anyway, it's clear that some drivers are better in the wet than others and for a complete world championship I think it's a good thing to have a couple of wet races in a year.
