I thought about this earlier - I think there was a full dry season without any wet racing sometime in the early 90s.

However - I'm going to through a curve ball in & include Race & Qualifying!

Anyone with a better memory than me?? :)

Thats a lot later than I thought.

The reason I asked the original question is that I think the last few seasons have been affected by a lot of wet races. Some people perform better in the dry compared to others in the wet. If theres a lot of wet races then this 'could' dramatically effect on the WDC for that season.

Ironically, if 2002 was a complete dry year its odd that Schumacher (the rainmaster!) won more races that season than any other!

From memory there has been at least one rainy race every year back to 1990 where my memory fades out.
And that's not even including Quali.

edit: Updated twice as remembered Spa 1992 and 1991.

Silverstone was wet.

Do you not remember Raikkonen and Coulthard talking to the chinese restaurant about wet tyres?

I think you have to look back to the 70s, when the seasons start to get shorter than 17-odd races.

It is possible it has never happened since the 50s.

There has been at least one wet race every year back to 1986.
I remembered one per year back to 1990 but needed wiki for the late eighties.
In 1986 there was no wet Grand Prix though I can't speak for qualifying.
