Didn't do well on the PI wet weather timesheets did he?
Never bothered to watch a wet 250GP, so I can't really say.

Dani used to struggle big time on wet tracks in his 125cc days and his first 250cc season. He did quite well in his last 250cc season, though he no specialist, at all.

He is improving but still a long way to go before he is as competitive as on dry track.

I haven't followed Dani's career close enough to know whetehr or not the wet will become a large issue for him. He certainly carries a reputation as one who doesn't like the wet but that can change and I'm sure it's something he has been and will be working on.

Ive got Shanghai '05 on tape, recorded off sky with Julian n Toby. They said that Dani is no wet weather rider. They did also say that Rossi was once like that.... look at him now.

You never know how it will pan out for him though do you.
