Panel or FlowLayoutPanel?

I need to make a white area on which I will place DataGridView objects (see attached). Should I use a Panel, a FlowLayoutPanel, or something else?

There is an issue with a shadow I described in another post, which may govern that decision.

Please met me know...

FlowLayoutPanels have an nice arrangement, so all you have to do is add controls to them and they provide the layout you pick, and you don't have to worry about setting the location.

But what if I want to specify where each control should go? I have a very clear idea.

Maybe a Panel would be better for this stage?
If they are added/removed during runtime FLPs are simplier. If not a panel if fine. If you need more views you can add a tabcontrol, and more DGVs on them.
