Winning matters most, but being slow and ugly would be unforgiveable.
I'm fairly certain that McLaren has a 'step-nosed' front wing sitting in their factory somewhere. The structure of the rest of their front chassis looks able to support it.
Just as how any car with a Stepped Nose could fit a normal looking from wing. If you look closely, the break points on all of these cars are all after the stepping geometry.
