Indeed. What makes Donington ’93 truly amazing is that Ayrton had a vastly inferior car to all those he passed on that opening lap (bar Karl Wendlinger who made a great start).

Rubinho and Fisi are great drivers in wet conditions (see Rubens poles at Spa 1994 in a Jordan or at Magny Cours 1999 in a Stewart and Fisi's pole at Zeltweg 1998 in a Benetton),but they have not the same racecraft of a Schumacher or an Alonso..

Another example of his great driving in the wet was his overtaking manouver on Mansell at Spa in 1985 on cold tyres when they'd just pitted for slick tyres.

Donington 93 was [perhaps] Senna’s greatest wet weather performance but there are many other examples of his wet weather mastery e.g. Monaco 84, Portugal 85, Adelaide 91 etc

If he qualfies 2 seconds slower than pole, his car is about 3 (or drives around 3) seconds slower (at least) than pole man. He finshed ahead at about 1 sec per lap ahead of hill so really he was averaging 3+1 second at lap faster the champoins (hill and prost ) in the wet alone.
becase it is wet he goes 4 seconds faster per lap than the best drivers in the world!
