We started with understeer
, aggressively chased that and ended up with a lot of oversteer.
John Martens, Delphi's project manager for ARS, says the system uses a yaw plane reference model similar to those of electronic stability control setups but adds a dynamic function that effectively reduces both understeer
and oversteer at all speeds.

With the Aussie, who suffered with a touch of understeer
on his qualifying lap, on Michelin tyres to Button's Bridgestones, the 11-10 looks top value.
It will also be the first model to use a new-generation electronic stability programme (ESP incorporating understeer
