Hi
My post above was for automatic gearbox usage.

Manual gearbox users will continue to post their preferred foot position.

Up on the dashboard or out the window. Or you're not doing cruise control right.

If you have Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) then you have no choice but to leave your right foot hovering over the accelerator to rapidly correct the numerous decelerations from false problem detecting by the radar system.

My wife has finally succumbed and bought an automatic, so now both our cars are autos. So I'm seriously considering changing to the two-foot system but at my age maybe changing anything like this is a big mistake.

Best way with an auto is leave your left foot on the footrest and only use your right foot.

If Lewis Hamilton can do it then I'm sure I can.

No, like you I think it would be a mistake to alter the driving style of a lifetime. My brother who's disabled has hand controls and they're great, perhaps I should consider them to save an aching hovering foot? :)
