Interesting article in the most recent Bicycling magazine by none other the Jens Voigt: despite all the advancements in technology over the last two decades, only two riders in the most recent Paris-Nice TT beat Sean Kelly's time over the same course 20 years ago. Voigt's conclusion: the bike basically doesn't matter, the engine makes the difference. The differences between the S3 and the S5 most likely do not translate to differences in a road race with the intrinsic effects of being in the pack and tactics etc. Keep working hard and buy whatever bike takes your fancy (depending on trial rides and fitting).
