A handling condition in which the slip angle of the front tyres is greater than the slip angle of the rears. An understeering car is sometimes said to push, because it resists turning and tends to go straight.
Understeer is more common on slow, tight corners. Understeer is sometimes desired for high speed corners because it is safer.
Possible ways to correct:
- add more front downforce
- soften springs and rollbar
- reduce front tyre pressure
