I like to do Turn 1 slowly so I can use the GPS to help me find my way out of the turn when I get lost in the middle!

I only get up to 120-130/4th on the front straight, so after braking and a heel-toe down shift to 3rd in a straight line and trail-braking into the apex.

If you are at the limit of traction in a turn, or close to it, any braking or accelerating of the rear wheels by innaccurate rev-matching could easily cause the tires to break loose and start sliding. This is why DCT is cheating!
