True, I see your point. Bet an F1 car's induction system is far more efficient than a road car too. I just find standard equipment is prone to heat soak and half the reason why people don't get the gains they expect when fitting a K&N and the like.

But I rekon we're all in agreement, they don't choke as much as a paper filter.
Currently in Mikey's garage:
1996 Mazda MX-3 V6, a 2002 1.2 8v Fiat Punto active (the Wife's!) and a 1998 Suzuki GN 125. Used to own a 2002 Laguna II Dynamique 1.8 16V (Now Sold yey!)
