    I would attribute it more to the stability programme as well as the x-drive AWD system. Note how the vehicle reacts, and how the wheels that aren't in contact with anything act.

    DSC-II and X-Drive is how it didn't flip over. A testament to BMW's engineering prowess! That damn thing was nearly scraping it's doorhandles on the terrain!

    You can see that he turns into the roll each time, bringing it down. Crazy recovery!

    If you think simple countersteering is going to recover a car like that, you're an idiot.

    No, a combination of the terrain, tires, driver, X-Drive, and DSC brought the car back 'round.

    If you don't believe it, I urge you to try it in ANY vehicle without those driver's aids. Do you seriously think a RWD vehicle could have righted itself like that, or that any vehicle could have done that without those sophisticated electronics?

    HINT: This is a showcase of BMW's technologically advanced driver aids, not of thier drivers. That should help.
