He would have been more believable if he said the lag is not noticeable.
Not quite, various F1 systems under development including an electric motor based supplement to normal gas pressure driven turbo chargers likely can produce a throttle response indistinguishable from a top notch NA response. Perhaps you means for a "conventional turbo engine...".

Also, on a semantic note isn't a turbo with no noticeable lag also "lag free"?
