I still doesn't believe that, coz I never have seen him driving in wet. Though last year's Hungarian GP did rain, but they didn't show Albers at all, so I haven't seen him driving in wet track...

Wow..

Just watched the 1997 race yesterday night, it was also rainign heavily there but still a lot of cars made it to the finish. even without traction control and other gimmicks... that was fun watching...

rain in monaco at the race would guarantee an eventful race

well he put the 8th fastest lap in the race and he was going a lot quicker then his teammate monterio... however, he chose the wrong tyres for the race so he was at the back but still going quick! he ended up getting 10th because the last pitstop was verrrry slow.... he is quite good in the rain. he has won many DTM races in the rain.
