With the sync to race, it takes about 5-6 laps for it to go from light rain to dry. But the transition should happen at the same time for everyone, there shouldn't be any issues there with that regard.I believe that it's the same each time from what I've seen in the social races and then in the official races. It seems to happen a few laps after half race distance as it was around lap 18 everyone pitted at Nurburgring, then Hockenheim seems be around lap 22/23. I think @Yorkie065 mentioned there was some sort of syncing issue with the weather effects and the actual grip levels on the track, so for example the rain would still be falling but the track is actually drying? Or I might have heard something incorrectly there, he's probably the best guy to ask about it.
And yeah, the games transitions are a bit odd. Basically you should feel the track start to dry at the same time as the rain starting to ease up and almost basically be dry although you can still see one or two drops of water on the windscreen. It's a bit odd....but also actually slightly realistic as I found out last Friday
