Not required with that transmission. The clutch is used to start and stop in first gear. All other gear changes are done without the clutch. Therefore no heel toe required.

I don't know if the car automatically blips the throttle (like DCT) or not but it doesn't seem to be an issue. They might use a slipper clutch that allows the motor to slip on downshifts and not grab causing the tires to break loose on the downshift.

It is a full sequential race transmission. Far beyond a standard DCT in durability and of course, cost.

Yes I know that...however I didn't know if there was some sort of automatic throttle blip to smooth out the downshifts.
