It is interesting to see this as "favorable" comparison. Basically he said that P-40 "could" outturn P-38, when P-38 was never intended to be a turn-fighter and turning was not the way to beat agile Japanese fighters anyway. He does not bring up any other "favorable" qualities of P-40 over P-38 and even that better turning is questionable, as "some pilots" did not realize it


Yep, I think he was more just point out a notable difference between the planes and  not so much indicating turn fighting a more agile plane. ie This feature stood out to him.
