Are fatter tyres really faster?

Ok so they are fractionally heavier "only 20g per wheel" With all the talk of marginal gains that is more serious, not to mention rotating weight. I would say that is why they are not used in more racing situations. I didn't quite understand the square tyre profile bit being more aerodynamic either, I can't say I've ever seen a square aeroplane or bird (yet)!
