Good point, but I don't speak German so for all I know they told us they turned off the traction control.

Also now that I think of it, to really do a true comparison all the vehicles would need to have the same type of tires as well since tires have a lot to do with the traction of the vehicle and I doubt that they are fitting the same tires on all vehicles for these test.
