First off, I based my statement on the linked and in my book good (at least the best we have right now) direct comparison, in which it's DC >> Forza >> PCars, obvs.
Secondly, while I think that footage is impressive, it's not as immersive and visually detailed as is Driveclub's. Considering everything besides the track looks like shit, it's really offputting to me and worsens the overall graphical fidelity dramatically.

DC is a nice looking game, probably having the best lighting out of any racer. The poor iq really hurts it though. I'd also say modelling, textures and weather effects (I'm honestly surprised DC doesn't have any, I'm sure it'd make the game look even better if they tried implementing it) give Pcars the edge. Forza isn't really close to either so I'm not sure why you're saying otherwise (probably some negative bias towards Pcars for some reason).
Oh, thank you to the bolded. And a definitive no to the underlined. I'm actually looking forward to PCars.
And again, I'm talking about the comparison screenshots posted on page 2. I think PCars' weather effects are nice and am hopeful Evolution look into adding any into Driveclub but seeing the whole picture, I'll stay where I stand.
Driveclub's textures may be less detailed (what are you basing this on btw?), but they don't take away anything from the overall graphical fidelity as the rich environments and small details put it in a league of its own.
I'd say when you go out and show people screenshots or videos of the three, they'll say Driveclub's the most realistic because PCars' off-track modeling is very telling and immersion-breaking.
You can have the best models ever, if everything else isn't holding up to that, that's offputting and not something you want (hyperbolic but I hope you get the point).

Yes. You can't brute-force pretty.
