I don't want to strain the car, so I don't left foot hold the brakes.

There is no launch control.

All I did in the video was stop the car engage drive on the auto box move the auto box lever to sport, release the handbrake and put the accelerator to the floor.

Please note the test is on a private aerodrome.
Give it another go with the brake first. There is minimal strain as compared to the loads in first gear when full boost is reached. Just hold at about 1500rpm so the turbo is at least spinning... you will be MUCH quicker. Id say by a half second.
