If you check you will find that just about every magazine/web site is reporting the same thing and stating that the statement has in fact come from Mizuno.
I agree that it does sound bizarre to think that engine and trasaxle mounts could make such a difference but I am keeping an open mind because I know how something as simple as a strut bar can make to how a car feels in your hands and even if the actual improve is small in terms of grip the confidence it gives makes you feel able to push a bit harder. On such a long lap as the ring it is possible for such added confidence to make up those extra seconds.
