Seems like it was filmed some time ago. After one of the more recent OTA updates the R1S doesn't seem to be as bad as they put it.
I felt this was one of the more critical or negative reviews I’ve seen to date. They were still pretty excited for the R1S but muted compared to the R1T

Do you think the OTA update addresses some of the oversteer or ride quality they mentioned in their review?

I just had my R1S First Drive and I definitely felt the awkwardness in the suspension. I daily drive a Defender, and the R1S felt too squishy even over small bumps. The sensation was like it was swaying side to side trying to adjust the suspension. Coupled with the fact that the vehicle drives extremely heavy (as in you FEEL the heaviness of the vehicle when you drive) it just made the swaying very noticeable. I'm hoping another OTA update alleviates some of the issues.
