Once and for all: Rider lean influence on bike physics?

I know we've had this question a few times in the past but people still don't seem to agree on what the current state of simulation regarding this is in GPB.

How does rider L/R and F/B lean affect weight distribution and aero?
Does it differ between riders and riding styles (animations)?

I don't think rider styles affects aero, neither weight distribution. At the end it's just an animation, how would that affect the physics? And yes, I'm sure Rider lean affects the weight distribution. I think you have to imagine the rider like a sphere that moves L/R, F/B on the bike, you can play without using an animation or without the rider model

I mean there is quite a big difference in wheight distribution between modern hanging-off and classic, crossed-up styles.

No, the riding style doesn't affect the physics in any way.
The idea is to allow everyone to choose the favorite style while keeping an even field when racing.

Hmm, goes a bit about the realism aspect of the simulation but I understand the intention.
