Should a Ferrari road car be driven by formula 1 drivers only?

Yes, in most cases.  You are getting a handful of downsides just to have an edge in performance you can't use or exploit.  Horrible cost benefit ratios.

But if you have the extra money, can put up with the downsides, and are happy just looking cool, then drive the Ferrari or buy the 70-200mm f2.8 IS II.
