What I see here is a classic pinching of the steering wheel: throttle applied without unwinding the steering wheel. This is a typical and probably the most common bad habit acquired with the use of stability/traction control systems.

If you want to get your technique right, keep MDM/DSC off, slow down the pace and keep working at it. IMO, continuing to drive with MDM will not allow you to progress.

EDIT: And what happens at 1:22 is exactly the reason why our club does not allow suction mounted cameras
