Fastest car around any road course is still an auto, though usually a DCT.
facts vs "what-ifs"

a DCT is a computer controlled MANUAL transmission. so really, your argument isn't even auto vs manual it is actually computer vs human. makes sense, considering you are friends with Bill Gates.

have you considered that you might be a robot?

I'm sixty and bought my first manual since 1990. Don't worry, it comes back to you quickly and the only handicap is when I do an over the shoulder look, there's barely a window there. Good God that's small!
