I think an F1 car is fast enough, that as long as you're running in clean air, the apparent wind would always be from the front. Yaw angles probably only come into play when turning. And if you're in dirty air behind another car it would probably just work like a " traditional" wing.
As you say, time will tell. But I'm fascinated...
