Slicks in Intermediate conditions are a joke
Seriously, what is the point of having intermediates if slicks perform as good or even better when it's raining?
I just had a 50% race at Spa. There were 9 laps to go when it started to rain. I went in for intermediates 3 laps later, because I lost already 8 seconds per lap, there were raindrops all over my face and my tires produced a lot of spray. So I changed my tires just to realize that it's even worse on inters, like if I was on ice. Two laps later DRS was disabled, but the AI stayed on slicks and were still faster. I lost 9 places and 45 seconds because slicks were better in rainy conditions than **** intermediates.
If it gets wet slicks should have a huge performance drop, it should be nearly impossible even to stay on track when there is already a lot of spray.
So either the visuals are more than wrong or the slicks have invisible treads in it.
