When the turning ability is compromised or exceeded, the car continues in the same direction it is traveling...it doesn't go "out."
Thank you Ted,been a long time since university. You explained it like the Hamster on his show.

He either didn't think he needed to brake because he thought he knew the course, or he braked and nothing happened. I can't see him trying to rail around that corner at 70 in an unproven $2m concept car - he seems a little more sensible than that.

maybe HAMMOND has to stop trying to drive like jeremy and start driving more like captain slow lol
