To better make this point (not that this is possible): Take two cars that are exactly the same, except one is FWD and one is RWD. I bet 10/10 times, someone who is well practiced with both will turn out faster lap times in the RWD.
Depends on the track as you'll have more drivetrain parasitic power loss on the RWD. A tighter course favors the FWD, if we're playing all things being equal (same output from the engine).
