This is how I was taught to use the steering wheel in the many autox schools I've taken. They called it "shuffling" your hands. You have the most control when your hands are in front of you. If you're crossed up (as you're forced to do with a yoke with a low ratio like on the new S) you have less fine control over the wheel with your arms in that position.Check how to properly hold the steering wheel of your vehicle. It will help you pass your driving exam as well as contribute to the overall safety on the road.driving-tests.org
Your hands aren’t supposed to cross or go above 10 and 2.
In addition, if you have to make a dramatic correction with your hands at 9 and 3, you can do so with a wide range, even in the middle of the turn if you've shuffled your hands. But if you're crossed up, you better hope your correction involves unwinding the wheel or you're screwed.
I'd imagine a 3rd party wheel will eventually come out at some point to fix Tesla's mistake, just like the add-ons for the 3 and Y to restore the gauge cluster behind the wheel that should have been there from the factory.
