I think the generally accepted explanation is that Ducati's weakness is the chassis- which just happens to be carbon. It doesn't behave like the alloy beam/perimeter frames of the other bikes. When the track is cold, wet and slippery the chassis dynamics aren't as important. The tyres don't offer the same grip so don't work the chassis anywhere near as hard. In the wet it's more about the general balance, grip from the tyres (equal), the electronics and of course the rider.
