If you are an Aerodynamicist then can you please explain how it is poorly designed?
Normally you can guess at the front end efficiency from how it aligns with the front suspension arms - good wings have it, bad don't, but with the suspension geometry of the BMW being weird it doesn't really apply here.
The wing doesn't appear to be designed with the interference of the monocoque/nose in mind, the 2nd element is a simple curve, with no real adjustment for the effects of the nose. I tend not to be enthusiastic about a wing design where the wake is hitting the monocoque/nose at a significant angle of incidence - easy to see in the pic below - it would tend to create unwanted turbulence which will affect the flow onto the splitter and thus the whole floor/diffuser of the car.
Obviously, no-one can tell how efficient their wing profiles are - thats simply impossible without simulation or experiment.
As for making a qualititative prediction on the downforce levels...
if anyone comes along and says otherwise (unless they actually work for the team in question) - they are talking pure brown stuff.
