Vettel's drive in the 2008 Italian GP should be revisited. It was both exciting and remarkable. His lead was built while the track was incredibly wet and that allowed him to bring his underpowered Toro Rosso (a far from dominate car) to a first place finish.

Remembering past world champions, there are certainly a few who wouldn't be considered particularly fast in the wet.

By the way, IMO the most remarkable thing about Hamilton... his skill and quickness haven't diminished. He's just as fast today as he was a decade ago.
