Drive train optimality depends on the context in which it's used.
There's places where AWD is good, there's places where RWD is good.
F1 lives in the world where 100% of front tyre traction is used for direction change, and none is left for braking or putting down power.
Downforce generates all the traction needed for the rears to suffice acceleration-wise.
