The wing is broken, there is nothing weird about how it is broken, there is no loophole, no visible benefit from doing this, so please, just drop it, and it's illegal anyway.
The front wing does not have to be parallel to the ground, but the reference plane, so follows the orientation of the car (rake).

However, the front wing pictures (and this thread's discussion of them) are clearly significant. Anyone who claims the wing broke in an ordinary accident and there is nothing interesting or significant about its subsequent orientation is asking me to be dim.
