Once you hydroplane, there's not much you can do, except wait until you catch ground again. As long as the tires aren't touching the road, it doesn't really matter what your inputs are. If it's relatively minor, I normally just keep the wheel straight, and let off the throttle. If you're heading towards a solid obstacle, you're probably screwed...

Full tread Azenis aren't bad in the rain. But once they're worn, it's a different story. I got caught in a rain storm the other day, and my fronts have maybe 1/4 of the tread left, my rears are virtually bald. Not too surprisingly, they were horrendous. The rears were hydroplaning at 50mph. Good thing my new tires arrived, just need to get them mounted.
