i'm no expert either, but you are def. right that whatever F1 drivers do, they mean to do it.

i just don't see it as black and white as always braking before a turn, and accelerating out. there are just nuances to driving, like trail-braking, which is staying on the brakes late into the turn, to shift more weight, and therefore traction to the front tires, to increase the yaw angle and 'drift' for decreasing radius turns and the such. also since the OP stated it was a turbo, early throttle application might be needed to get or keep the turbo's spooled up, to reduce lag. an example would be, if you come out of a turn w/ no oversteer, but no boost, it might take you a while to get some boost, and you loose a couple seconds of maximum acceleration. if you throttle early, and go a little wide, it might be more than offset by having full boost at the beginning of the strait, since that initial harder acceleration and resulting speed will be carried over the entire lenght of the strait, multiplying that inital speed gain by the entire time you are accelerating.

hell yea. i don't play any video games anymore, but when GT2 came out while i was in HS, i stayed up all night playing it. which was a big thing at the time, haha.

you should read Skip Barber: The Art of Race Driving. That book ruined me as far as being a slow ass A->B driver. i'm looking at buying me a race car in the next few years...

I had a GT website although it's so old I don't know how much of it still works. After the second one, I really didn't play it much other than trying to get gold on all the license tests.

That guy has balls of steel. Doing that kind of stuff in a sports car is one thing, but doing it on a sport bike is insane.
