I think the whole argument here revolves around track conditions. On Med to low bite tracks, I find that softer springs offer less initial steering and exit steering, but more mid-corner. As the bite ramps up to the levels we see at major events in the US, it almost seems like a softer front spring "gives-up" mid corner and makes the car "plow" through the apex. In this instance a stiffer front spring tends to mellow the car out on entry, but lets the weight transfer into the tire, rather than getting lost in the softer spring rate, and therefore steers more in the center.
