well you seem so sure what is there left to discuss.

Look at it another way: It certainly won't create less DF cause the main plane has essentially been moved forward with increased AoA and a sort of fairing has been added to maintain the seal in front of the wheels. Since the second (rearmost) element can be designed with drag reduction in mind (rather than DF) and the front element should generate more DF (leverage and increased AoA).
To answer your question no it wont work. It will create much more drag and probably less downforce. Look up how a multielement wing works. You wan the flow to "pass" from one element to the next. Your wing is choking most of the second element off and you are making your first element trying to force air into your second element.
