Agreed. I need to upshift and downshift 7 times per lap compared to 3 times on a 6MT at LCMT. That is 8 more shifts per lap, so you do need to pay more attention. However DCT makes the shift itself very easy (simply flick a paddle) plus it allows to shift in areas where it could be pretty difficult to do with a 6MT.
