What the flying f*** is up with these controls

Okay so I just bought this game off Steam. I jumped through the 30+ hoops just to get playing, and now I'm finding it completely unplayable due to the atrocious (and unchangable) control scheme.

Specifically for vehicles, as I haven't even gotten out of my car yet.
Who in their right mind decided that WASD was the best steering method? Just no.
I wouldn't even have a problem if it automatically snapped the camera behind my car, but no, I have to continuously move the mouse which doesn't work because my mousepad is not infinitely large.

So what I'm asking here is is there any way to either A: Make it so the camera snaps behind your car, B: reverse the controls for steering/camera when in car, or C: get a PS3 controller to work on my PC.
Thank you.

The control scheme is changeable, you're definitely missing something. To center your camera; tap caplock which is also your look back button. To use a PS3 controller; you'll need to download MotioninJoy and use http://www.motioninjoy.com/blog/motioninjoy-simulate-xbox-360-controller-virtual-xinput-device to emulate the 360 controller.
