Question rain tires for newbies?

Why is it when you see someone from another race series tries out, or tests an F1 or CART car... they always stick them on rain tires? Do they want them to have less grip so they won't hurt themselves?? Isn't it relative, if you're going to find the break point of a tire, then you're going to find it. ...granted that point would be at a slower speed on the rain tire, but still.
