You should also be developing the timing and judgement involved in selecting the right speed for a corner, the timing of each move as the car goes through the bend, the feel for the sort of progressive brake pressure required for various speeds, easing the brake pressure so the car doesn’t lurch violently when it stops.

The secret is to be relaxed.

If you get out of rhythm and it all becomes stabs and jerks, come back to a pace where you regain your confidence and rhythm.

As soon as you find yourself sitting forward, or gripping the wheel hard, or jumping on your brakes, you are getting tension into your driving.

If you are getting tense, the warning bells are sounding that you are driving beyond your ability.
