That's a different topic. I wasn't comparing two different riders in two different years, but comparing the performance of the same rider on the same bike, in the same year, with the only changing variable being rain/not rain.
And I was wondering if really the Duc is "good" in the rain or if it's just that, the rain being an equalizer, it simply allows Rossi to do what such amazing racer can do: putting on a show racing at the front.
Looking at the other Duc in rain/not rain conditions, I tend to believe it's the second option, but I'm not 100% sure.
For the record, I'm a Rossi fan and I do believe he's one of the greatest ever, but I'm not yet 100% sure he's not over the hill. This is a tabu topic for many fans, but I don't think it should be, declining performance is a law of nature nobody can escape.
Moot point though: performance in the rain makes you believe he still (at least partially) got it.
