So sorry, I just don't buy that 2 fingers thing. It helps a lot, but only up to what is provided in the first place. In fact, I have just driven the corsa with just 1 finger, to no avail.
The idea isn't to actually hold the steering wheel like that as a method. It's just a temporary coaching exercise to try and relieve the death grip that some (99.99%) of the clients have on the steering wheel.
Once that is resolved, it's best to try and create as much contact as possible between the wheel and the whole surface of the palm and fingers. It's also a good idea to use leverage where possible, which is what the thumbs do.
That tends to coincide with positioning the hands acros the diameter of the wheel, rather than across a chord, which also helps.
