No, unlike wmB at al, the Q gives you a very distinctive and progressive warning 
and is very easily correctable (provided, you have the good tires). I suggest you 
go on one of the Q club track events. It is the only safe way to explore your 
car's behaviour at the limit. You would be AMAZED how much further that limit 
actually is from where you expected it to be on a Q.
