Sorry, if conditions were a negative impact, they should have ran on a better day. This was a very big deal.
How long were they there, do you know?
A test like this was done probably over 3 days. The logistic involved is daunting. They have to fine tune the car and monitor every change to make it the best on the last day and it was raining. Sorry but that's life...they probably extented it for another day but it wasn't better.
They had a specific time frame and had to deal with the weather.
Everyone hopes for better...it is what it is when it was done.
