You shouldn't have to pause, it will downchange on every pull. Cruising at 40 in 4th, pull the down paddle twice (double downshift) in R mode and you should be instantly in 2nd at around 4000 rpm.

But when off throttle and braking it reacts less sharply but still super quick.

R mode downchanges at 100mph and braking hard are fantastic, but unfortunately the car isn't capable of braking quick enough to fully apppreciate 4 or 5 rapid downchanges.
