I wasn't heel toeing at all, but using a quick clutch on every up down and down shift.
I can get up shifts without clutch but down shifts without clutch is just not happening for me. Maybe with more practice but not sure if the risk is worth it at the moment.

I used stick with right foot braking, heel-toe downshifts.
I'm going to have to risk clutchless downshifts as I lost around 1.5-2 sec/lap heel-toeing. :'(
I think the timings are too tight for clutchless shifting?
Just slip the clutch like I do.

You know about my dislike for chicanes, rolling starts and blue flags, well you can toss is heel 'n' toe with that lot too.  >:( :P
What's ruling out heel-toe would rule that out as well.
If there's any lateral force at all (Aqua Minerali & the kink before Rivazza mainly), the car gets very unstable when I lift off the throttle to apply the brake.
I usually overlap the throttle/brake under lateral load to avoid this.
What I did Tuesday was to either brake earlier of lift and coast before the lateral force came in.
The other technique I used was 'hybrid', left foot brake initially and swap feet half way through the braking zone, when I needed to shift.
But I still had to brake early to give me room to swap feet on the brake so I could use the clutch, resulting in reduced retardation during the "foot dance".
Hence, any use of the clutch on downshifts requires right foot braking and extended braking distances. :'(
