Ferrari also moving toward turbocharging but NOT with ANY lag

Pretty old news I guess, but I found it interesting to hear it quoted straight from a Ferrari engine designer.

Most importantly:
For those with a turbocharged vehicle, you know how quickly turbo lag can destroy a driving experience. Well, so do the engine builders at Ferrari and they refuse to release any other information or details about these aforementioned engines---at least, until they can eliminate turbo lag all together.
Let's see what BMW M has in store for the M3. I have not seen the turbo lag on the new M5 discussed much but have not read everything out on the car either. What is the consensus?
