Still the armchair jockeys question the experts who decided it was too dangerous. I think all of the cars automatically raise themselves 5 to 10MM when setup for the rain tyres. This helps to prevent aquaplaning when normal rain is encountered. BUt nothin will prevent aquaplaning when you have standing water on the track. You have a large flat surface (the bottom of the car) meeting standing water. That is physics and has nothing to do with the ability of the rain tyres which are already removing 60 litres per second and are not wide enough to remove the water in the middle of the car.
