I don't see why every track needs a sprinkler system, and you could take the uncertainty away by just announcing that the 2019 French GP was going to be a wet race, and just leave the sprinklers on the whole race.
As a spectator, it would be great to watch a wet race on a nice dry sunny day.

I don't see the need for an artificial, gimmicky wet race at all.

Agreed. It's just an answer like DRS that attempts to work around the real issue rather than deal with the problem.

Other series don't have this problem. Don't change the tracks to suit F1. Fix F1.

Alright, I've got it!

Forget Miami, lobby Chase Carey for a Seattle street race.
