Ok, well, then I doubt you will find much to optimise in the driver 
manager, and you will need to talk to the driver maintainers about any 
changes you want to make there. But in my experence what makes ODBC fast 
or slow is how you use it. Preparing statements, using parameters, using 
multiple rows at once, all these can help things.

You might have a read of this 
its aimed at a particular driver, but also contains some good generic 
ODBC performance tips.
