No driver in F1 wants oversteer.
Are you sure?
By definition if you get rid of all the understeer, you are going to have some oversteer. It's impossible to make a car that is perfectly neutral.
The Alpine A110 oversteers in almost every corner (chassis balance, not power oversteer), and is considered an excellent handling road car: https://youtu.be/iigAQH8DR8g?t=99
It's a huge contrast to the similarly priced BMW M2 which has bulk understeer in every corner, and the driver really struggles to get the nose in at all.
The very act of tuning out most of the understeer, is going to create some oversteer... The only alternative is to leave some understeer in. But then the likes of Tschuyia will moan "under, under..." and that is hardly acceptable! https://youtu.be/1hg9774ARZg?t=39
My current front-wheel-drive car seems to have a lot of movement in the rear. There is a tendency to turn-in and then need to back off the steering angle a bit in higher speed corners. Running the same spring ratio as stock (about double in the low motion ratio rear than the front, which equates to 2.0Hz front, 2.3Hz rear), but different sway bar ratio to stock (Australia model had 23mm front, 19mm rear; Japanese model had 25mm front, 22mm rear; current running Australian 23mm front sway bar, Japanese 22mm rear sway bar). I may need to put a smaller rear sway bar on.
