I know you can do better. This is UK weather and he was just warming up the tires. They will not run only once.

If I may share a little bit of what I know.....

Most of the oversteer situations actually start as understeer. People notice understeer and hit the brakes causing the front end to suddenly get grip and the back end to loose grip simultaneously thus turning into oversteer.

Even if you meant controlled understeer to controlled oversteer, it would still be inaccurate since there are many drivers that can actually do that.

Tiff Needel used to do that.....Understeer with a snap of oversteer. Tiff can drift the Automatic transmission.

Well if he is warming up the tires that's one thing...and that car is a cow I can see how they'd need massive understeer to induce snap throttle overseer. Then again, I thought this car is half.autobot and controls itself half the time

And to be clear, screeching tires doesn't mean you're past the limit of grip. At the limit of grip the tires will screech. Having seen the Stig post some pretty amazing times on that test track, I'd think long and hard before giving a critique of his technique.

At the end of the day he's trying for ONE fast lap just like qualifying. I just finished reading his book and he talks a lot about his mentality during those lapping sessions. Basically Ben Collins will do whatever it takes to have a fast lap, period. If it requires driving like a madman he'll do it.

We know who the Stig was. Whenever the Stig outs himself they replace him. He doesn't get paid as much as the big 3 so the man in the Simpson Bandit usually spends a few seasons and then takes a book deal.

I would also consider that driving so many different platforms around different tracks, he would spent a few laps taking it past the limits so he would know where they were so on the final run there isn't a split second missed if he could have taken a turn faster.

Its autobot in the eyes of those who don't get to its limits, which most don't, as the limit is insanely far away. Furthermore very few drive it with TC fully off, most don't go further than R-mode.
