QUOTE: "...With its low drag, the Schlörwagen reacted very heavy to side winds. This made it difficult or even dangerous to control the vehicle...."

I found this quote interesting. It implies a car having "low drag" will have a bad reaction to heavy side winds, and makes it "difficult or even dangerous to control the vehicle."

Why would "low drag" characteristics bring such difficulties in side winds?

The implication seems to be that a non-aerodynamic high drag shape handles side winds better than an aerodynamic low drag shape.
