Not really. First from the overall thrust. Gear 1 goes to manual but after that DCT has more thrust in every gear and significantly more in 3rd gear which is a very common track gear as well.
Second part of the arguement of why DCt goes with the m3 is due to having to keep the revs up which means lots of shifting. Lots of shifting constantly with a few clicks is much quicker than each manual shift and if you have to shift a lot, the seconds with each shift (miliseconds) adds up in time and simply effort.
