The problem with the rear wing is that there is too much of it. The only way to get air to flow through is to remove as many obstacles as possible in it's path. So the lower element and the elongated end plated need to go as far as I am concerned if they want to reduce turbulence to the car behind.
Not to be rude, but that's based on what? Have you got the fabled CFD eyes?
If you actually read any of the articles associated with these images you'd see the purpose of the rear wing is to thrust the low pressure "turbulent" air upwards, allowing higher pressure air to fill the void from the sides. The actual rear wing wake is high enough that it won't affect the following car, and how is affects the rest of the wake is extremely beneficial. If you didn't have it then the wake of the rear wheels and floor just sort of hangs around and affects the following car more, the exposed wheels BTW are the most significant part of the wake when it comes to dirty air/turbulence.
