I have first-hand experience of a failed rod at 8500 rpm although this was when racing a vintage snowmobile. Piston, rod, sleeve, crankcase, bearings all in small pieces and poured out through the tuned exhaust pipe. Fortunately it only required a rebuild of the 1 and only cylinder. I could not imagine such a failure in a high performance exotic Ferrari. Extremely painful emotionally and I suppose also in the pocketbook!
