Post subject:  Explanation of "Oversteer / Understeer"

I loved this, borrowed from the "F1 Slang" section of the Formula 1 Website....

During cornering, oversteer is when the rear wheels of a car lose grip, causing the back end to step out. Understeer, on the other hand, is when the front wheels lose grip, which sees the car travel at a shallower angle than the one the driver is asking for with the steering wheel until the front tyres grip up again. Or to paraphrase the great rally driver Walter Rohrl, if you see the barrier you’ve driven into, that’s understeer. If you hear yourself hitting the barrier, it’s oversteer.... :shock:

GO RED BULL / HONDA AND MAX VERSTAPPEN IN 2019 !!!!

PS, Morgan's were a lot of fun to drive because they oversteer....

Great pic, I've got a 79 Spitfire. Holds the road great but not much power.
Should be interesting on how Redbull do with the Honda engine. I'm a Ferrari guy and I was impressed by Leclerc last year.

Strange how Kimi and Leclerc changed teams.... but apparently when Kimi got his walking papers from Ferarri he went straight over to Sauber and offered his services.... Good move for all four, at this time, IMO.... Ferrari unveils today, I think....

Yes I agree, I hope the Alfa Romeo team does good this year with Kimi. Also it's going to interesting to watch Racing Point with Perez behind the wheel.

Also I love the new look for the Red Bull RB15! If my team doesn't have a chance I always go for Red Bull. Not a fan of Mercedes at all.
