Fuel Issues in rain - Campaign

So just going and doing my daily race weekend yesterday, I'm at Canada, it starts lightly raining, so I check with my engineer to see how long its going to last, he just tells me my tyres are fine, but then my fuel vanishes. 
Go back on today, French GP. Rain starts, so I change my Brake Bias, engineer pops up saying we should change, and pop. There goes a lap of fuel.

Surely this cant be a coincidence. 2 races, 2 lots of rain, 2 lots of fuel vanishing.

    No intermediate or full wets use more fuel. You're race plan is for dry calculated not for rain.
    Take 1 or 2 laps extra fuel with rain

    The thing is though, I'm on SSs but times. Not switched over yet, so calculations for fuel wouldnt have changed surely?

    Did you even watch his video? His fuel went from +0.9 laps to -0.20 laps the minute he asked his engineer a question. Weird stuff

    Hi all, I'm going to move this over the the Tech Assistance forum.

    Thanks for the report and the videos. I've passed this along to the team for a further look.

    Clearly a bug. I don’t know what planet you have to be on to lose more fuel when using lower revs but it’s not planet Earth.

    No they don't. You should be using much less fuel in the wet.

    And another one about an hour at Hungary. Went from about +0.4 laps to -1.4 laps. https://xboxdvr.com/gamer/the-uk-unknown/video/63444312

    Tom97HD had exactly the same thing in his career mode at China in season 4 (episode 66). It went from close to 0.0 to -2.9 once the rain came.
