Not that I want to reignite this thread but I read an article by Csara Csere on PDK in the new issue of Panorama. He writes that contrary to popular belief that PDK is faster on the track because of faster shifts and less power interruptions the real reason is reduced mental load for the driver who can fully concentrate on optimum braking and driving the correct line and not diverting mind space toward shifting. Sounds like he read Cal Newport's book "Deep Work".

I'll still practice H/T for the reasons mentioned by Dirk and others but look forward to comparing lap times at the next DE with and without auto-blip.
