"But I fear the DSG wouldn't impress lil' Lewis (Hamilton). See, even in Sport mode, the Leon won't let you get near the 7,100rpm rev limit. No matter how hard you try to take control of the shifts (the DSG cleverly works out how actively you're managing the gears and when to shift to auto' mode), it still overrides as soon as you get anywhere near the redline. In fact, it's always just too keen to drop back into automatic mode and make all the shifting decisions for you. Very sensible from an efficiency/engine wear point of view, but it's all a bit nannying"
