Its all about tuning the suspension to get a neutral handling car. A limited slip differential can also help the car pull through the corner under hard acceleration instead of just spinning the inside wheel.

Also though power doesn't have everything to do with how a car handles through a corner. Just because if has that power doesn't mean your using it. Often the fastest way through a corner is to carry momentum through it while modulating the throttle, not just powering straight through it.
