I hope you don't feel i'm criticizing you, I'm genuinely concerned. Been in a nasty crash myself
+1 I was just about to write the same thing.

Move that seat forward!! When you sit with your shoulder rested against the seat and extent your arms, your handwrist should rest on top of the steering wheel. Again, not criticizing, just trying to help.

And you should keep steering wheel inputs to the minimum, keep the car in balance and not upset with harsh movements. It's all about smoothness when driving fast.

Keep it safe
