This is incorrect. Assuming constant engine power and no active buffs such as Attack Pattern Omega or Evasive Maneuvers, your ship reaches its maximum turn rate when your impulse slider is at 1/4 (regardless of the actual speed this corresponds to). Both speed and turn rate are tied to engine power. Increasing engine power increases both.
