You should rely on ESP and not worry about it. However, keep in mind that
it cannot overcome the laws of physics, which means that on wet pavement, at
speeds over about 50mph, ESP will take some time to correct which means you
will slide several feet off course and even fishtail somewhat before you are
back on track. On ice and snow, the threshold is even slower, like 30mph or
even 20mph. The best thing you can do to help ESP react more quickly in an
oversteer situation is ease off the accelerator. While it will do this for
you, this also lets it "know" that you "know" that you are sliding and it
will react more quickly.
