Yes Maarten is right, auto clutch with simple gear off could be the fastest option for you, when you get used to that style.
You could also try to leave auto-clutch on + using H-shifter mode and assign the gears to some buttons at your wheel instead the switches inside the H-shifter by editing every single button-number that is allocated to each gear there in the shifter.ini to the numbers that are being activated when you press the buttons at your wheel (for example "GEAR_1=6", 2GEAR_2=7", and so on for a G25 wheel).
That way you have always to press the button down to leave a gear put in -which may be a strange feeling at first-, but you don't have to move (a maybe sometimes dodgy or defect) H-shifter stick around and you're being now even more faster at the gear-change (because the way that the stick needs to change gear is now eliminated
). That's probably sounds 'not so legal', but I think some other people beside me (my H-shifter is defect beside just three switches that still work) are using this method too -they just don't talk about it like me to keep their 'secret' maybe
-, when I hear (at replays) how fast they change their gears too, but to check that I would need their very own replay-file.
