    Actually its very difficult to control the car during aquaplaning. We do say that one should release the brakes, control the steering etc, but believe me the way the mind reacts in such situations is totally different. If this is the first instance in someones life then there is no way that within a fraction of second one can think of brakes etc.

    The natural human tendancy is to slam the brake and hold the steering tight. ABS EBD and ESP helps things during such situations. Active model has very less to help in these cases.

    Exactly!
    No one can expect such a thing to happen when he's sweetly cruising on the E-way at 120 Kmph, listening to favorite tracks and enjoying a drizzle with lush greenery outside. You are so very relaxed at times and suddenly your car makes a unnatural drift, as if its ice skating, whatever you do will not be enough as there is literally no contact between the tyres and the road. The features like ABS, EBD and ESP will perform their duty only when there's some traction after the car manages to stick to the road.
